Baby Heirloom Tomato Salad-
I found these gorgeous baby heirloom tomatoes at the market today and could not wait to make a salad out of them.
My daughter says I need to make more salads and side dishes. I guess, I've been making a lot of main courses and treats. She loved this salad, by the way, even though she is not much for tomatoes.
If you can't find baby heirlooms, then just chop up the large ones. I added chopped bacon, and avocado too. Then tossed with olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt. Then Sprinkled with Parmesan and mozzarella crisps. Very light, refreshing and colorful.
