heirloom tomato salad

The past week has been filled with wonderful meals and bountiful harvests each day. One particularly good meal was homemade falafel served over an heirloom tomato salad. If you’re game, here’s how to try it yourself.

Tomato Salad

3-5 lbs. ripe heirloom tomatoes, sliced

olive oil

red wine vinegar

S & P

This is best chilled before serving, but never refrigerate uncut tomatoes! It will ruin their flavor! Store any leftovers in the fridge for an ever more intense vinaigrette flavor the next day.

Falafel

1 lg. can chick peas (Or fresh, if available. They are not hard to grow, but we didn’t plant any this year.)

olive oil

garlic, onion, S & P

chop handful onion, one clove garlic, and mash chick peas with potato masher. Mix, add S & P and form patties. Bake on oiled cookie sheet for approx. 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through. Alternately, you could fry them in a fan, probably enhancing their flavor but also their fat content. As you wish:)
