Four Tomato Spinach Salad

What's for lunch today?



Fresh picked greenhouse goodness.

I went to check the greenhouse today to see if there were any ripe tomatoes or watermelon, and was pleasantly surprised that there were more than enough tomatoes ready-to-pick, and create into some type of salad for the whole family.



This is how it went...




 Four Tomato Spinach Salad


Here's the creation:


Fresh out of the garden: Roma, Cherry, Heirloom and Beefsteak tomatoes, parsley, chives, green onion, New Mexico Big Jim Peppers.


From the store: Avocado, pine nuts, spinach and balsamic dressing.






Using any fresh ingredients in a salad is always great, but adding homegrown ingredients makes you feel even better!

I know that's a sappy comment, but it's true!


I chopped the fresh herbs and tomatoes, added salt and pepper, balsamic italian dressing, topped with avocado slices, toasted pine nuts and laid over a bed of spinach for the perfect semi-homegrown salad.


Enjoy!
