A simple no-tomato summer salad

IMG_3443

Our little veggie patch is currently dripping with tomatoes. At first we were all very enthusiastic about this bounty, but I’m afraid Grace has experienced too much of a good thing! After weeks of eating tomatoes (in some form or another) as part of her lunch and dinner, Grace has decided to go on a (gasp!) tomato hiatus. Like her mother, she doesn’t want to be served the same thing over and over again and I guess she’s allowed. So I put together a non-tomato salad for us all last night which she happily devoured. We enjoyed it with some fresh tuna and eggplant, ricotta crostini for a super simple yet tasty summer dinner. It’s hardly a recipe, but I thought I’d share for anyone else who has had their fill of summer tomatoes like my child apparently has.
