Today I made my very favorite summer salad: Tomato Basil Salad. It can go a lot of ways, but in my opinion the most crucial element is a bowl (or plate, or platter) full of bite-sized pieces of homegrown tomatoes sprinkled with bits of homegrown basil. I vary the dressing and cheese element, but a good piece of crusty bread is also a must. Today I dressed it with EVOO and sea salt and added four-pepper goat cheese. Yeah! The tomatoes are really going to be here in bulk soon. I can't wait!
