It’s just the right season to get some big, beautiful, colorful tomatoes. This recipe is a super-simple way to highlight the brilliant flavor of this summer fruit.
Here’s an easy one for quick-lunchers everywhere. And you’ve probably got these ingredients in your kitchen already!
My partner’s parents affectionately refer to this dish as “Jen Salad.” It’s a chopped salad with basil, coated in a simple goat cheese-based dressing. It takes about 5 minutes to prepare, and makes a great side for a grilled protein of your choice (I like to do this with chicken).
Another recipe inspired by quickly expiring produce from my friend’s market share! In this case the basil I received had begun to oxidize, so I wanted to use it before it went completely dark and limp. I also used some basil from the plant I am growing on my window sill. I really do not like pignoli (pine nuts), so I decided to make my pesto with almonds, but you can use pignoli and follow the same basic recipe if you’d like.
