I love, love, love tomatoes. No kidding, LOVE, but I have a confession to make…I’m a tomato snob. I don’t eat them in the winter because they have no flavor and tend to be mealy. Ok – now that that’s over, here’s part two – I’ve found an answer to my problem! Small heirloom tomatoes. They are sweet and really delicious.
I chose these tomatoes to be the star of a salad I put together this week that included onion, feta and basil. It’s packed with flavor and can be paired with any entree. What’s great is that you can make this salad in the morning & keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to fix dinner. Just set it on the counter to come to room temp and then enjoy!
