A simple no-tomato summer salad


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.
