Simple tomato and basil salad

DSCF7651

This is a nice and easy salad which is refreshing in the summer and a great side dish. It tastes especially good if the tomatoes and basil are organic and homegrown. But I might be biased šŸ˜‰

Just cut the tomatoes into thin slices, then lay them out in a dish, cover with chopped fresh basil and then do another layer of tomatoes and basil for as many people as you’re feeding. Add some finely chopped red onion to spice it up.

For the dressing, I make a mix of olivie oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, honey, lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Make sure it’s well shaken up, you can use a jar to store it in or re-use an empty vinegar/olive oil bottle. I’m all about experimenting so just mix it up until it tastes right to you!
