Heirloom Tomato Salad with Mint

Nothing is as refreshing to me as the flavors of fresh, vine-ripe tomatoes and freshly chopped mint. Add a drizzle of virgin olive oil and a light sprinkle of salt… and you’re done!

Well, this recipe adds two B’s to raise the taste-bud orgy…basil and balsamic vinegar.

3 Tbs. Balsamic vinegar
1 Tbs. extra virgin Olive oil
3 lbs. mixed organic heirloom Tomatoes, firm
3 Tbs. fresh organic Mint, chopped
3 Tbs. fresh organic Basil, chopped
Salt and cracked black pepper
Shredded rice or almond cheese (if you can eat dairy, use Asiago shavings)

In a small bowl, mix/whisk together oil and vinegar.

Rinse and core tomatoes, and slice 1/3″ thick. Arrange on a platter in layers drizzling dressing over tomatoes and sprinkle mint, basil, salt, pepper and cheese evenly over each layer.

Cover and chill at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

~ Cheers!
