Tomato, Garlic and Herb Salad Recipe



Let me warn you,  if you eat this salad, you will have major garlic breath! I am a huge garlic lover, so I don't mind at all. This Tomato, Garlic and Herb Salad is so quick and easy to prepare! It's an awesome way to use garden fresh tomatoes. I know, it's the beginning of October in Minnesota, and I'm talking about garden fresh tomatoes? Yes.

This is my very last bowl of garden fresh grape tomatoes for the summer of 2012!


 We picked them just a few days ago along with the rest of the tomatoes in the garden. Tomorrow is supposed to be chilly outside, which it will truly feel like fall in Minnesota. I am so happy, this is my favorite time of the year! This salad is my last taste of summer and what an amazing taste it is! Enjoy!!
