Summer Salad of Crumbed Tomato Slices

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This is really not a recipe, and I want to make that perfectly clear because I don't want to offend anyone with what might appear to be misleading information! A few days ago, I needed a side dish to complete our meal. I prefer at those times to try and come up with a vegetable or at least having a vegetable as part of the ingredient list. And this is what I made.......

Creamy Tomato Slice Salad.

by the seat of my pants!

2 large tomatoes
2 T vinaigrette, of choice
1 T mayonnaise
1/3-1/2 c seasoned croutons or zesty crackers

Remove stem and blossom ends of the tomatoes, slice into 4 slices each, arrange on serving plate.

Combine the vinaigrette and the mayonnaise, blending until smooth. Drizzle over tomato slices.

Crush the croutons.

Sprinkle over the tomato slices, add a sprig of your favorite herb for garnish, serve!

I enjoy "recipes" like this one, they are simple, adaptable, and use what you already have on hand. For a larger crowd, just double or triple the ingredients.

  1. I love this salad, Melynda. So simple but wonderful. All of the best things...part salad...part tomato sandwich...part tomato pie. Yum!

  2. Simple salads are often the best, especially with tomatoes because it brings out their flavor. I might try this with the over abundance of garden tomatoes I have right now, thanks!

  3. You're killing me here. We can't get good tomatoes in Arizona, they taste like paper. I miss those Indiana tomatoes you could eat like an apple.

  4. At first I read "crumbled tomato slices" and wondered how on earth did she manage to crumble tomatoes? Sigh. It's been a long week.

    This is a great idea--love it!

  5. I also love this,, its just so fresh and light,, lets the tomato shine!!
