Growing Season

There is one good thing about the hot summer we are having here in Ontario, my tomatoes are growing really well this year.
I noticed this week the first crop of cherry tomatoes are ready to be picked,
it won't be long until the bigger Roma and Beefsteak varieties are ready too.
You just can't beat vegetables grown right in your own garden can you?
It doesn't get more organic than that.

Here is a simple Italian style salad that takes minutes to put together.
I have left out amounts as you can adjust to suit your taste.
This dish is great to serve alongside grilled meat or fish.

Tomato Salad

  • Sliced ripe tomatoes
  • Sliced red onions
  • Bocconcini cheese halved
  • olive oil
  • fresh minced oregano and basil (or dried if no fresh available)
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh ground pepper
On a platter arrange slices of tomato, add onion and cheese slices on top.
Sprinkle with herbs and pepper.
Drizzle olive oil over the top.
