Dog Days of Summer Tomato Salad

Can you believe that AUGUST is almost over already?!?! Where did the summer go, I still don’t know. Seems like I just finished school the other day and now I’m starting my college course today!

Well, I guess there is one bonus for the end of August – tomatoes! I love tomatoes. And I can tell you that is an understatement. I eat so many tomatoes you wouldn’t believe it! There’s just something so refreshing, tangy, and perfect about these little red pieces of fruit…

I wanted to share with y’all on of my absolute favorite ways to eat tomatoes – Mediterranean Tomato Salad. It really doesn’t get any better!

Ahh, just seeing those tomatoes makes me hungry… This salad has the perfect balance of flavors with lemon juice, olive oil, and mint.

This recipe is actually out of this cookbook which has a ton of other amazing recipes as well!

What you will need for the first part is:

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

1/3 fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup olive oil

Mix these together and set aside.

Next, you will need:

3 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges (as shown)

2 scallions, coarsely chopped

10 green mint leaves, chopped (or if you don’t have fresh mint, you can also use a tablespoon of dried mint)

After you’ve combined the last set of ingredients, pour liquid on top and mix it together. Enjoy!

This salad is one of my favorites and I hope it becomes one of yours too! I love to eat this with a lentil dish or on top of lettuce as well.

Thanks for reading friend!

Can’t wait to see you on my next post:)

Love from,

Lauren
