On My Table

What would you like for dinner tonight?

One perfect tomato, please.

Slice it up, if you don't mind, so I can share it with my best friend.  We'll each have two quarters, I think. With just a little salt.

And can I get a delicious summer vegetable salad to go underneath it?  That would be perfect, Thank You :)

Summer Vegetable Salad

1 head romaine lettuce, made bite-sized
1 small yellow squash, sliced in coins
1 small zuccini, sliced in matchsticks
1/4 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 green pepper, sliced bite-sized
3/4 c grated cheese of choice
1 handful meaty bits (bacon bits, chopped salami, prosciutto slices, etc)
3 T garlic scape pesto
1/4 - 1/2 c olive oil
1-2 T red wine vinegar (to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
One Perfect Tomato

Wash, dry, and chop vegetables and lettuce and put in salad bowl with grated cheese and meat pieces.

In a small jar, combine pesto, olive oil, vinegar.  Screw on lid and shake vigorously to combine.  Add salt and pepper to taste, adding more vinegar if needed. Shake again to mix in spices.

Pour salad dressing in salad bowl and toss well to combine all ingredients.  

Top with one perfect tomato and serve.
