Tomato Basil Salad


A cooling salad for a festive or everyday meal

Preparation time: 25 minutes

Serves: 6

Place in a bowl:

  • 3 large tomatoes cut into crescents (or pack of cherry tomatoes)

  • 6 mushrooms, cut into 1/8" slices

  • 1/4 cup olives, sliced

  • 1/3 cup artichoke hearts,* quartered

  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced

In a small bowl, mix dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled and minced

  • 2 pinches dried mustard (optional- tastes great without it)

Pour dressing over vegetables and toss. Add, to taste:

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

*Use artichoke hearts packed in water, not vinegar. I usually get the frozen ones from Trader Joes which work well.
