On the weekend we visited my parents because they hosted my Aunt's 60th birthday. As per my mom's usual generous style, she had a huge bowl of cherry tomatoes she picked from her garden for Walker and I to take home. I was pretty happy about this because the last few farmers market visits I made, I ran out of cash by the time I got to the tomatoes.
Homegrown is the best kind of organic you can get! ...Especially when it's grown with love and attention. Walker was really excited to use these tomatoes and make something yummy. As you might hvae seen from my Instagram on Sunday, I made bruschetta and then Sunday night, Walker made this very pretty platter. It looked like a piece of art!
We enjoyed the remaining tomatoes in this salad as an appetizer with some delicious homemade iced tea with blueberries.
Real food doesn't need to be complicated. In fact, most of what Walker and I cook is really simple with great ingredients. This salad is quite "uncomplicated"! Ha!! I like the sound of that. So here's Walker's recipe for an Uncomplicated Tomato Basil Salad with Goat Cheese – and it sure does look pretty!
By the way, if you were wondering why I love goat cheese, here's why:
We enjoyed this as a yummy appetizer and then had organic grass-fed grilled steak with my Kale & Beet Chopped Salad.
I hope you try out this salad and it makes your taste buds JOYOUS! :)
