Summer Heirloom Tomato Salad

I have never been a fan of tomatoes, in fact I can’t stand them UNLESS they are Heirloom Tomatoes. So in the summer, on a hot night when I don’t feel like cooking, this easy salad is a quick solution to my dinner plans. It is easy, light, delicious and quite healthy. I have taken it to parties and people raved about it so please feel free to re-create and enjoy!

Recipe ~
4-6 Heirloom Tomatoes, sliced in wedges
3 Persian Cucumbers
3 Yellow Cucumbers diced thinly
Mozzarella balls marinated in olive oil
3 Scallions ends only

Dressing:
Sea salt
Dijon Mustard
Red Wine Vinegar
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Basil
Pepper
Mint
Sugar

Now I tend to do things by feel so I haven’t included measurements for the dressing because it varies each time. A dash of this, a tablespoon of this, a splash of this so mix a little and do the ever popular taste test. It is roughly a tablespoon or two of each typically but again, do it by taste and flavor.

Now, I recently paired this with a lovely2010  Taltarni Sparkling and it was quite nice but I have also paired it with the 2011 Archery Summit Vireton Rose’ and it was quite lovely! I will miss summer for these pairings but will look forward to next year to re-create this delicious ensemble.
