Hearty Tomato Salad

Have you ever had one of those days where you open your fridge and you barely have any veggies to make a decent salad? Don’t sweat it when that happens! so yesterday I made some kabobs and quinoa and it really needed a salad. I opened my fridge and the first thing I saw was these beautiful yellow and orange tomatoes. I have never seen these kinds before. I had to buy them! I know I am not good with change I really was skeptical. I love the traditional RED tomatoes! I really wanted some cucumbers and I know I had bought some a day before but seems like I have some rabbits in my house that got to my fridge before I did. (smile) Kids! I had to make do with what I had. This was very good and sometimes the simpler the better!

Serving Size: 2



2 Large Tomatoes (any color will work) Chopped
1 Lemon
2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
6-8 Mint Leaves (chopped)
1 TB Olive Oil
1 Small Scallion (chopped)
Salt and Pepper to taste


Place all ingredients in a bowl. Mix and Serve. Garnish with more mint if desired.

This is delicious with any protein and a side such as rice and quinoa.

    This looks soo good! My boyfriend and I are going to make it. But I was just wondering, what did you do with the lemon? Just squeeze it in the salad? Thanks for the recipe!!
