Red Tomato Treats!

It’s that time! Red tomatoes are everywhere in my boys’ gardens! Rex’s tomato plant has about eight red ones ready to harvest, Morris has taken two, and Daddy’s tiny treats plant has about 15 ready each day. My roma plant yields about six to eight a week.  Jude’s plant needs a little more sunshine as his cucumber plant has invaded tomato turf. Yum!

Tonight we made Tomato Mozzarella Salad:

4 large tomatoes, chopped into bite-sized chunks

1 pkg of fresh mozzarella (although I have used string cheese before…)

5-6 basil leaves chopped

A drizzle of olive oil or balsamic vinegar/dressing

A sprinkle of pepper and garlic salt

It’s fresh and delicious! Here are the leftovers:

I also love to make Pico de Gallo and sprinkle it on salads, tacos, or eat it right out of the dish as a fresh salad:

1 chopped tomato

¼ finely sliced onion

Cilantro finely chopped (I like a lot!)

Lime juice

Garlic salt

Tomatoes are a summer treat… like ice cream! …The boys might disagree with me on that one. 🙂
