Happy May! I think May is as busy as December. What a busy month. I am still enjoying being a preschool director and we have about two weeks left of preschool.
I am always looking for a quick and easy side dish. I think this Tomato and Onion Salad is going to be my "go-to" this summer. I like just keeping it my fridge - for lunch or dinner. I meant to include basil.... I LOVE basil. I actually had basil and forgot to put it in. I thought the salad was great without the basil. I will probably put basil nest time and you could even add fresh mozzarella balls.
Tomato and Onion Salad
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp honey
1 tsp fresh garlic
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup loosely packed chopped fresh basil
In a medium bowl, stir together the first six ingredients. Add the tomato halves and the red onion pieces and gently toss to coat. Top with basil and gently toss again. Enjoy!
Store in fridge.
**I like to take it out of the fridge a little before eating to toss and get the olive oil more incorporated.
