Sometimes I forget how little it takes to make a great salad. Basically all you need is one in-season veggie along with some salt, pepper, and olive oil to make a knock-your-socks-off salad and this recipe is the perfect example.
I served this right along side my Soy and Agave Skirt Steak which made for a super easy (and rather tasty) weeknight meal.
Just be sure that you are working with really ripe and seasonal tomatoes since they are the star of the show. I promise you… if your tomatoes aren’t good, you’re salad won’t be good, so don’t waste your time if you have less-than-stellar tomatoes.
I really had fun posting the weekly menu last week and am thinking about making this a monthly feature. Not only is it fun to share with you guys but it really helps me stay organized and committed to my plan as well.
