Garden-Fresh Tomato Salad or “Tom” Salad
I call this “Tom” Salad because my husband really does make one awesome tomato salad. He puts a bunch of different spices in it. Whatever he feels like. This is what I have caught him putting in to it.
- 2 large, ripe tomatoes
- 1/4 red onion, sliced
- one long-hot pepper, seeded, deveined and cut in to rings
- salt – a couple of pinches
- pepper – a couple of grindings
- garlic powder – a couple of shakes
- 2 Tbps. olive oil
- 4 or 5 basil leaves
- 1/2 tsp. dry parsley
Cut tomatoes into one-inch chunks. Add sliced onion and pepper. Season with salt, pepper, garlic salt. Pour in olive oil. Turn to coat. Add parsley and basil. Turn again. Refrigerate and serve.
