Two Cherry Tomato Caprese Salads….

I bought cherry tomatoes this week and got some in my share. So, I have made two different caprese salads with them and still have more. I just can not eat them whole. I am very picky with tomatoes.

Tomato Feta Salad….. This first one is from Ina Garten and the only changes I made was I cut the recipe in half. If you ever have an abundance of vegetables google what you have with her name and she will give you many delicious options.

Always buy good cheese. It makes a huge difference.

1 container of cherry tomatoes

1-2 tablespoons of diced red onion

Chopped parsley and basil

Crumbled feta

White wine vinegar- 1 teaspoon

EVOO- 1 tablespoon


Quarter tomatoes then add diced onions and a little chopped parsley and basil. Pour in vinegar and oil. Toss with S&P and feta.


Carrabba’s Tomato Salad….

I ate this at Carrabba’s and fell in love with it. I pretty much perfected it at home so I have not had it again there. So easy and fresh.

1 pint cherry tomatoes

1-2 tablespoons of diced red onion

1-2 tablespoons of diced kalamata olives



1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar

EVOO – a couple drizzles

Mix everything together let sit for an hour to maximize flavor.


You can eat this with pita chips, a baguette, over salad, chicken or on a pizza. I think I may put some on my eggs tomorrow.

On whole grain naan bread topped with an Italian cheese blend and baked in the oven. When it comes out – top with tomatoes, extra basil and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
