This was an inspiration from an outing with Felicia to the wonderful little cafe Lemonade.  Side note: They have many great and unique options for the everyday vegan.  Anyway, Felicia got this wonderful salad that was heirloom tomatoes with a light olive oil and basil dressing.  And that was it, but it was sooo flavorful!  I think that the key is to use really great tomatoes,  if you don’t have quality tomatoes you might as well make ketchup or something else because it just won’t do the salad justice!  I purchased my tomatoes from my local farmers market.


2 small heirloom tomatoes
8 yellow grape tomatoes
1 tbsp. basil finely chopped (I used purple basil, but you can use whatever you have on hand)
zest of 1/2 lemon
1/4 c. olive oil
coarse salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)

Pour olive oil in a bowl.  Add finely chopped basil and muddle basil by smashing with the back of a spoon.  Next quarter tomatoes into bite size chunks.  Add salt and pepper.  Stir to coat all tomatoes and garnish with lemon zest.  Enjoy!

Makes approximately 1 serving

A flavor revolution in your mouth!
