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!
