heirloom tomato and arugula salad

It may be September 1st, but we still have plenty of these beauties around the farm.

The wonderful thing about having fresh tomatoes at your fingertips is that lunchtime is always a no brainer.

If you have a garden or frequent your local farmers market, I suggest stocking up on a few tomatoes to have during the work week.  We usually fly through our front door at noon starving and this salad never disappoints.

There isn’t even really a recipe. But I will share what we usually do.

Grab a large bunch of fresh arugula.  Throw it through the salad spinner and then put a few handfuls onto plates.  Top your plates with a few slices of fresh tomato, crumbled mozzarella cheese, and a giant dollop of fresh pesto.  Drizzle everything with some olive oil, a little bit of fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper.

That’s it!  You can totally make this your own.  Serve with crusty bread, balsamic vinegar, even a few slices of fried bacon on top.  Go wild!
