This is one of my go-to “salads” of all time. When I was growing up, to slice a few tomatoes and serve it on the side was a perfectly good “salad” in my mom’s opinion. Quick, simple and no need to dirty a salad plate for it…
Nowadays, I embellish it a bit with the drizzle of olive oil and the addition of salt to season. And because there’s hardly any ingredients in this, the quality of the tomatoes will dictate how good this salad will turn out. I prefer using sweet beautiful grape tomatoes. But lately, my aunt is bringing us organic heirloom tomatoes her neighbor is growing and they’re absolutely fabulous. Please use organic tomatoes if you can find them near you…
I have this Tomato Salad all the time to accompany pasta, rice and particularly loved it as a garnish for the Florentine Mac & Cheese, but it was more than just a garnish, it was the perfect flavor complement….
10-12 grape tomatoes, washed well with a veggie rinse and sliced in half About 1 tbs of olive oil 3 dashes of kosher salt
- Mix together well to combine. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to marry.
Can this be any simpler???
