Can’t Get Enough of Your Tomato Salad

What you need:

  • 4 medium sized ripe tomatoes (or 2 large tomatoes)
  • 1/3 onion sliced into 1/8 inch slivers 2 slices
  • French baguette (or bread of choosing)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
Note:Serve immediately to prevent the bread from getting too soggy. To avoid the spice, you can omit the red pepper flakes, and I can personally promise you that it will be just as delicious!

What to do:

First toast your slices of bread until they are golden brown and then set them aside. Next take your scrummy looking tomatoes and put them into a medium sized mixing bowl. Add the onion, olive oil, and balsamic vinaigrette and gently mix it up with a large spoon. Be careful not to mush the tomatoes up. Now take your toasted bread and cut it up into pieces a little larger than the size of a dice. Toss them into the mixing bowl and add the red pepper flakes. Take your large spoon and gently mix it altogether and you are all set!

Story:
I made this salad for the first time about a year ago. Colleen, Caitlin, and I make it a habit to go to the farmer’s market every Saturday morning. Each week I looked forward to all of the wonderful crispy tomatoes. I think that I ate them with every single meal and always felt a little heart broken when I was on my last one. -Stephania
