heirloom tomato salad.
Thursday, August 16, 2012
farmers market tomatoes are jumping out of my fridge, i have so dang many. you should know that this salad is essentially panzanella without the bread. cheater!
pairs well with pasta and pizza leftovers. a side of fresh produce perks up a day old menu.
heirloom tomato salad
heirloom tomatoes (about a pint or so)
small red onion
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
freshly ground pepper
1. slice tomatoes, onion, and basil and set aside in a bowl.
2. i never mix the vinaigrette in a separate dish. i just kinda eyeball it and pour the olive oil and vinegar right on top.
3. give it a toss and finish with lots of sea salt and freshly ground pepper. i swear it makes all the difference.
ps: spoon the mixture on top of toasty bread and you have bruschetta. is it bru-shetta or bru-sketta? someone make it right, once and for all.
