You know what’s funny? I’ve always said I’m not a salad person, yet some of my most favourite dishes are salads..like caprese salad, potato salad, pasta salad. So I guess I finally have to admit that I’m a salad person. I’m even starting to love green salads more. I love the freshness of real ingredients, especially when you can find them fresh off a farm or from a farmer’s market. And this salad is one of those…if you can get the tomatoes for this recipe, fresh right off the plant, the flavour is out of this world. Is there anything better than a tomato right from the plant?
Anyway, let me tell you about this salad. Oh this salad, it’s so full of flavour. Healthy and delish! I could seriously eat it every day, and I wonder why I don’t make it more often. It’s great on its own for lunch, or served up alongside BBQ roasted chicken or ribs. Seriously yum.
It reminds me of something you’d share with friends over a little glass of wine on a warm and sunny patio. I’m dreaming of those days…I know they’re coming…slowly but surely they’ll come. For now, I’ll sit in a little sunny corner of my home and enjoy the scrumptiousness.Print
