Heirloom Tomato and Thai Basil Salad
Time: 20 minutes
2 lb Heirloom Tomatoes,
½ cup Packed, fresh basil leaves
⅓ cup Very Finely Sliced Red Onion
1½ tsp Minced Garlic
1½ Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1½ Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ cup Crumbled Goat Cheese
Sea Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Cut the tomatoes into bite-sized wedges and gently use your thumb to remove as many seeds as you easily can (seed removal optional). Add the tomato wedges to a serving bowl and toss them with the basil leaves and onion slices.
Just before serving, combine the garlic with the vinegar and oil and toss this mixture into the salad. Season generously with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Sprinkle the goat cheese on top, and serve immediately.
