A sweet summer tomato salad that is keto friendly, vegetarian, healthy and so good! But first… let me tell you about the summer harvest!
I’ve mentioned on our fb page how our daughter’s garden has blessed them with an abundance of cucumbers and now tomatoes. What can be sweeter than having such abundance from ones garden?
Fresh, homegrown is totally and significantly different than what we can buy at the grocery store. It tastes so much better, the flavors are robust and fresh and when you cook or bake with it, it comes through so much better. Even the grandkids (5 and 3) can tell a difference!
So this summer found us making good use of all the goodies.
After freezing a number of the tomatoes to use for later (and for our guests), we’ve made fresh salsa, tomato jam, crushed tomatoes, and lots and lots of salads.
Then from our garden came these beautifully jeweled – yellow tomatoes that are just as magnificent.
So what is a summer without salads? Aside from adding beauty to your dishes, they are so darn good for you! (Pretty sure I’ve eaten my weight in tomatoes this summer!!!)

Did I mention that our grands decided to have a pickle stand this summer because of the overabundance of cucumbers and because they love the pickles so much? They sold out both times and our community enjoyed the fruits of their labor.
