Tomato Salad With Goat Cheese

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by crazycookinmama

This recipe is from French Women Don't Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano. Here is an excerpt from the book... "Although you can find tomatoes year-round in France, too, they just aren't the same as they are in season, which runs June through September. In summer, my family used to eat tomatoes at least twice a week, but typically three or four times, in different raw preparations for full flavor. In this recipe, a bit of cheese makes for a heartier dish, which means the meal or fish portion later in the meal can be smaller or eliminated. We almost always had some fresh goat cheese from a local farm, but you can add mozzarella as in Italy or Feta as they do in Greece." (We ate this as the main course, with some garlic bread).

Delicious with homegrown tomatoes and lettuce from the garden. I used Simpson lettuce and endive. I really enjoyed it! Thanks! Made for Photo tag.
