Carlos and I eat a lot of tomatoes. Between 2 of us we can eat 2-3 pounds a week. Our most favorite tomatoes are the plum and heirloom. We like heirloom variety as it has intense flavors. We were shopping at Trader Joe’s the other day and we came across these baby heirloom tomatoes. Aren’t they beautiful!!! They are just so colorful and so appealing. I can’t resist and bought a few punnet of it. With tomatoes like these, you don’t need to dress them up much as they are flavorful, juicy and sweet as it is. With just some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and you are good to go. If you like you can add a bit of chopped parsley or basil to it. This salad is great to accompany any meat dishes.
1 punnet baby heirloom tomatoes – halve
Some chopped parsley or basil
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil \
¼ tsp black pepper
Salt to taste
Mix the dressing up and pour it over the tomatoes. Add in the parsley or basil and toss it lightly. Serve cold.
