Ripe, juicy, perfect tomatoes for breakfast, and then again for lunch. I usually add a handful or two of arugula, but it was looking awfully wilted after our three day power outage. Simplicity itself.
Simple Fresh Tomato salad:
2 large, perfectly ripe red tomatoes, cut into chunks
a handful of yellow pear tomatoes, halved
1 T.olive oil
1 T.red wine vinegar
lots of freshly ground pepper
chopped parsley and basil
Rub a clove of peeled garlic around the serving bowl several times. Add the vinegar and olive oil , salt and pepper, and whisk briefly. Toss in the tomatoes and the parsley and basil, and arugula if you have it. Serve at room temperature .
I wait all year for this - enjoy!
