I have so many tomatoes, the heat wave has caused them to grow like crazy... and to top it off my neighbor just brought me a bucket full of them from his garden!
It is so hot here right now that salads are our main meals, and with all these tomatoes I figured I would try a really simple Mediterranean tomato salad with olives, and it turned out amazing.
There is something so amazing about fresh-picked warm tomatoes tossed in a salad. If you buy your tomatoes at the supermarket try keeping them in the sun for a bit before cutting, it really does makes a world of difference.
This salad, like most of my recipes, is super simple and can be altered pretty easily. I think next time I would add some avocado for good measure also.
Serving this with some crusty bread is always a hit.
