Fresh Roma Tomato Salad

RomaI had a bunch of Roma tomatoes in my kitchen and would usually turn them into a nice pasta sauce or a bruschetta chop.  Roma tomatoes have such a succulent, sweet taste to them.  I always include a salad with our dinner every night and was pretty tired of the same old green salads I tend to make.   So I took those Roma tomatoes and turned them into this delicious side salad.  It is a quick and simple, fresh and wholesome salad.

All of my ingredients are fresh and organic.

8 Roma tomatoes, washed, sliced lengthwise into 6 sections (depending on the size of the tomatoes)

1 tablespoon oregano, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried oregano

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 dozen pitted Kalamata olives, sliced

2 tablespoons capers, chopped

Juice from 1 fresh lemon

1 small red onion, finely minced

1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley, chopped

2 red peppers, roasted and peeled, seeded and chopped

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon chopped red chili flakes

Himalayan salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Mix all of these ingredients in a large bowl.  Refrigerate to let the flavours come together while you prepare the rest of the meal.     Serve on a bed of greens if you like or just spoon into individual salad bowls.

Yummy, yummy, yummy.

This recipe has become one of my favorite uses for Roma tomatoes.

Give it a try.

If you want to…..you could always add a bit of good feta, goat cheese or shaved parmesan as a topping.
