Print Tomato and preserved lemon salad

Light and crunchy, cold and juicy, this vegan salad is good with fresh bread and salad. Substitute the tomato with cubes of cooked sweet potato or squash for a milder, autumnal finish. To make this a full meal, toss with couscous, bulgur or quinoa and crumble over feta or goat's cheese.
