Saw this today, on "photo of the day" and "recipe of the day" and had to make it right away for "Saturday Lunch at the Farm". I had everything on hand from the farm, so this was easy, and a joy to behold. I wish I could eat this everyday, it just brings a smile to your day, and extra skip to your step. The layering was perfect, the dressing of the vegetables, spot on. Thank you for bringing such a joy to our day! Made for Derf, August 2009. Just because.
Excellent salad, Derf! I followed everything as written except I used Jane's Crazy Salt in place of the salt/pepper. I used perfect vine-ripened tomatoes and I agree with CG...that makes the dish! Thanks so much for posting!
Just excellent and definitely a repeater! This weekend for example. I made one serving portion and had to use cherry tomatoes b/c some bird pecked a big ole hole in the one Big Boy tomato that was finally ripe. I also chopped up the onion b/c of using the smaller tomatoes. No sea salt on hand and subbed kosher salt and used fresh ground Tellicherry pepper... YUMMY! Just too good! I imagine that the quality of the tomatoes will make a huge difference with this salad. Thanks, Derf!
I really enjoyed this recipe. Purchased tomatoes from our local farmers market to insure the most flavor. Only change I made was to use kosher salt instead of sea salt per thats what I had in the pantry. Will be making this again for sure. Maybe next time will sprinkl with some crumbled feta cheese as well. Thanx Derf :)
The key-the absolute key to the success of this recipe is the freshest ingredients. Therefore I used fresh from the farm: tomatoes, lettuce and red onion. One of those type recipes you should never prepare out of season. Thanks for posting!
