How to Make Tomato Cracker Salad

This tomato cracker salad recipe is not quite as basic as others. I like to add a bit of diced red onion and garnish with cherry tomatoes. It just gives a bit more to the salad, but if you like to keep those out, feel free. It’ll still taste amazing!

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the diced tomatoes, chopped green onions and diced red onion.
  2. Add the mayonnaise to the bowl and gently toss the ingredients together until they are well coated.
  3. Season the salad with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. I go pretty heavy on the pepper myself!
  4. Just before serving, crumble the Saltine crackers into the salad. These crackers are the star and add a delightful crunch.
  5. Give the salad one final gentle toss to incorporate the crumbled crackers evenly.
  6. Garnish with halved cherry tomatoes and diced green onion.
  7. Serve your Georgia Tomato Cracker Salad immediately. It’s perfect for picnics, barbecues or as a complement to your favorite meals.
