Basically, I sending all the “Hi”s to you guys today. I have been anticipating summer because some of my favorite veggies are in season now. And at the very top of my list are vine ripened tomatoes. Which is the real super star of this Balsamic Tomato and Onion Salad recipe. And having Dorot basil ready to go in the freezer made this super easy recipe even easier. Love it!!
I can’t tell you guys how much I absolutely love having these little Dorot pods of herbs in my freezer. It makes cooking super easy. And I just hate when I want to make a dish but I ran out of fresh herbs. so this is super helpful. I found them in the freezer isle and simply tossed them in the freezer for future use.
I am so here for all this salad! It has everything: sweet ripe tomatoes, semi-sweet-semi-tangy onions, tangy balsamic vinegar and tons of herbs. What could go wrong with all that goodness?
The kids are on summer vacation so we are officially planning our camping trip. I am pretty sure I am gonna blog this trip. And this Balsamic Tomato and Onion Salad recipe is seriously on my list of make ahead dishes.
Because I found that the recipe is AWESOME after it is refrigerate for an hour but the balsamic soaked onions and tomatoes tastes AMAZING the next day.
My goals for this summer is to really get outside and enjoy this glorious Florida sun. So super easy salads like this one is right up my alley. Don’t you love super easy summer salad that are low key and simply delicious.
