1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Method:

In a very large bowl, combine all salad ingredients. Toss gently to combine.

To make the salad dressing whisk all the ingredients together. Pour over the salad and toss to combine.  Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

To serve, gently toss the salad again to refresh the dressing. Sprinkle pinenuts over the top. This salad is best made the day it is to be eaten. Refrigerate leftovers and use within 24 hours.

*If you don't have cherry tomatoes cut large tomatoes into quarters. Cut each quarter into three chunks.
