“Too Many Maters” Salad

Print page

With the end of summer drawing near and the tomatoes clinging just barely to our vines I thought I would make a special salad tonight in honor of the last of our tomatoes….we may yet get a few more stragglers but I am not hanging all of my hopes on it for sure.

This salad is very simple to make and I just came up with it at the spur of the moment really but with lots of ingredients many of us use already!

“Too Many Maters” Salad

You just take a variety of tomatoes.  I had 2 sandwich slicing tomatoes (smaller), a couple of plum tomatoes, and about a cup of cherry tomatoes (all varieties).

I chopped the sandwich tomatoes up into little pieces.  Then I chopped up the plum tomatoes, too and lastly I sliced up all of the cherry tomatoes in half.

I then crushed up some basil coarsely and sprinkled it around.

Then I put in about 1/3 C. reduced fat mozzarella.

Sea Salt and Crushed Pepper to taste

Lastly I drizzled balsamic vinegar and olive oil on top and stirred it all together and the final piece was serving it all on a bed of romaine.

This salad is delicious and it is all about the precious tomatoes!
