Salade de tomates

Nothing says summer like fresh vine-ripened tomatoes. So, when a girlfriend offered some from her garden, I was thrilled to accept. This was the perfect opportunity to try a classic summer salad that I love, but have never prepared: a tomato salad. 

Refreshing, flavorful, and healthy, this quick and easy recipe comes from one of my favorite everyday French cooking websites and is absolutely perfect.

Step 1
Wash and quarter four tomatoes and place them in a bowl. Chop one half of a small red onion and add it to the bowl.Chop ten stems of fresh cilantro, five stems of fresh chives and add them to the bowl. Carefully blend the ingredients. Step 2
In a separate bowl, prepare a vinaigrette by mixing one table spoon of olive oil and one table spoon of white vinegar, a dash of salt, and fresh ground pepper to taste. Step 3
Pour the vinaigrette over the tomato, onion, herb mixture. Blend carefully and serve. Bon appetit!
