So, I’ve been failing to post for the weekly blogging events for sometime even though I intended to. I really like joining in on the fun for events like ARF/5-A-Day hosted weekly by Sweetnicks, since it challenges me to make something new and different that brings more antioxidants and/or vegetables into our home. Check Sweetnicks later tonight for a round up of great recipes.
This week, on my return post to the event, I made a very simple and flavorful tomato salad using fresh farm market tomatoes and basil from my own garden. I love how the flavors came together for this dish.
This would be a great pairing for a simple grilled chicken or London broil marinated in Italian dressing.
2 1/2 tbsp crumbled blue cheese
2 slices bacon, crumbled
1/4 cup Basil Vinaigrette
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
