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.

    Yum! Of course, you need some good bread to go with this to soak up all the juice — and it’s even better the next day! (If there’s any left!)

    • That’s for sure, Judy! I like eating just a roll and tomato salad for lunch.
