Sometimes I need a bit of Summer in Winter. A splash of red in my meal can do the trick, especially when it’s not a sauce. Tomato salad is easily my favorite. It’s easy to dress up with fresh herbs and cheeses or lemon juice and/or vinegar, but I like it best at its simplest.
4-5 medium tomatoes cut into wedges or large dice
2-3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
few grinds black pepper
Mix together gently and allow to sit for at least fifteen minutes. Serve cold or at room temperature.
