Summer has arrived with flowers in the garden no doubt soon to sprout lush fruits and veggies. With that comes summer salad season. Some of the easiest meals, eaten hot or cold.
Tomatoes are one of my favorite fruits, with a multitude of varieties, it makes summer salads a beautiful design of vibrant colour.
While the combination can be played with the following ingredients are the building blocks of a superb summer salad.
Cut the tomatoes to your desired chunkiness. I just sliced then in half for the most part. In a colander give the tomatoes a generous sprinkling of sea salt and let sit for 15 minutes. This will draw the water from them. Sprinkle with dried Italian seasonings, oregano, basil etc.
Then put on your noodles a cup per person cook as directed.
2 part olive oil to 1 parts balsamic vinigar, a grated clove of garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
Mince a red finger chili pepper sans the seeds.
Add the noodles still hot, and mix season sea salt and pepper. Add mini boccaccini.
