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.
