    winkki's Note:

    From the local newspaper; a twist on the usual tomato salad. Simple to make but with a beautiful presentation for summer brunch or parties. Fresh basil and tomatoes make this a real treat! Prep time does not include overnight chilling of ricotta mixture.

      This salad confirms that simple food is the best! I did reduce the salad to only serve two people. I used a curly leaf lettuce and choose elephant garlic for the ricotta mixture. Fresh basil was unavailable, therefore I used dried. Next time, I will definitely increase the garlic and use regular garlic. I felt the elephant garlic was too mild. Lovely, simple and delicious salad! It would be great as a side salad for a meal or as a light simple lunch! Very versatile! Thanks Winkki!

      Simple and delicious! I made a half recipe recently and was surprised how delicious this was. I followed the directions but did not use the lettuce when I put it together the next day. Thanks for a simple and tasty recipe, and a good substitute if buffalo mozzarella is not available for a tomato and cheese salad. Yum!
