A simple vinaigrette with supermarket tomatoes.

tomatoes, quartered
red onion, sliced
salt and pepper, to taste
fresh parsley, chopped

Basic Dressing:
approximate, it's all to taste!

  13. I love simple but flavorful salads like this :) It's good to be reminded that we don't need a 100 ingredients to make a salad. I've never seen black tomatoes before, they look a bit intimidating... are they red gone ripe, or a different kind of tomato?

  20. I adore heirloom tomatoes. No more local ones until next summer, but sometimes they appear in the grocery store. You use a bit more vinegar than I do but I love balsamic. I'm not sure we can get white balsamic in our stores, but I'm going to look for it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sounds yummy! I've added it to my recipes, can never get enough lovely salad recipes.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love heirlooms, too! But I don't think these are heirloom tomatoes. But I originally got them because I thought they were. They're called Kumato tomatoes. They have a nice shelf life, and they're pretty sweet, great flavor. Found them at Trader Joe's but my supermarket carries them as well.

    Thanks for the comments :)

  28. OMG those tomatoes are gorgeous!!! And just for grabs at your supermarket??? *ENVY!* :)
    Do they taste exactly the same as red tomatoes? Or wait, what am I saying... there are so many types of red tomatoes LOL. Which variety would you compare them to?

    ReplyDelete
  29. @ Gnoe, I have no clue what they'd compare to, but they are sweet and very firm, nice tomato flavor and a long shelf life. I think they may be a hothouse variety or something.

    Here's a link I googled...

  47. Thanks, Carol. We are now starting to get quite a lot of good salad ideas. I am now starting to think there might end up being even more links than chicken - which currently stands at 100!
    Hope you are having a good week.
