My sister in law works at a local farm and the other day she gave us some beautiful tomatoes. (Ours aren’t even close to ready yet, but they are looking good.)
I had some stale Wildflours bread (I am not even sure how that happened at our house, usually we eat it so fast it doesn’t have time to go stale) and I had some mozzarella cheese in the refrigerator. All the foods to make a perfect tomato salad.
I used garlic scapes, beautiful tomatoes (I don’t even bother buying them at the store during the winter because they taste like cardboard, so these first tomatoes of the year are a real treat!), my stale bread, which lesson learned, I should have toasted up a bit first, mozzarella, fresh basil, a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar (see the link below for the balsamic vinegar that we use, so delicious!), a little salt and pepper and a few minutes of waiting to let the bread soak up all the yummy flavors (only a few minutes because I was fairly impatient to try it), and viola, yummy deliciousness in just the amount of time it took to chop the food and toss in a bowl.
In hind site, adding chopped bacon would have been a good way to get some protein in here and would have made this taste like a BLT in a way. Ohhh, try that and let me know how it tastes!
We ate it right up, no leftovers with this meal.
The perfect summer treat!
