It’s that time of year again! The tomatoes are plentiful, heavy on the vine and perfectly ripened. If your sun gold, grape or cherry tomatoes are proliferating, have we got the Mediterranean Diet recipe for you.
This lovely tomato vinaigrette dish is excellent served at room temperature over crisp lettuce. It also makes a great topping for crunchy crusted sourdough bread. Just add a little smear of butter or a drizzle of olive oil and top with the tomato vinaigrette for a taste of summer. Add a few shreds of parmesan and chopped herbs for another dimension of flavor. We also enjoy these tomatoes served over slices of fresh, good quality mozzarella. As you can see, this dish is incredibly versatile. It is also a lovely sight to behold while involving only modest efforts.
Not only are tomatoes delicious, but they offer up incredible benefits and are a key food of The Mediterranean Diet.
