Summer is here and there are soo many tomatoes everywhere!!! Wikipedia says there are 7500 different types of tomatoes…so imagine what a choice we have!! We can stew, cook, puree, soup,salad and do what not to our tomatoes…So today lets DRESS them up!!! My way is always the easy, time and budget saving way…Delicious food doesnt need to cost the earth!! Make this recipe when tomatoes are abundant and cheap!! So here we go!!!
red ripe and firm tomatoes, cut into round slices
grated parmesan cheese
olives of your choice, i used de-seeded green ones
For the dressing:
a good splash of a good SPANISH EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
salt to taste
a pinch each of dried or fresh oregano, basil,parsley and rosemary and garlic powder
a pinch of black pepper
mix the ingredients for the dressing and keep for about 30 minutes for the flavors to infuse.
Place the tomato slices on a plate. If any juice of the tomato oozes out while cutting add it to the dressing, it enhances its flavor!!!
Pour the dressing on top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle generously with the grated cheese and decorate with olives!!
Serve immediately with hot baguette!!
