Cherry Tomato Salad

Monday, July 16, 2012

Tomato is in season right now and abundant at the farmer’s market.   

One of my favorite things to make is a tomato salad.   

I threw together some cherry tomatoes and basil leaves, and dressed them with a balsamic vinaigrette.   

I used cherry tomatoes, but you can use any tomatoes.  Heirloom tomatoes would make a wonderful salad.   

I have been eating this a few times a week.  It’s my go to salad.  Not a lot of prep work needed.  No fuss.  Very simple but refreshing.  And calorie friendly.
