Standing in front of the gas stove is becoming quite a task and with super simple salads and raw foods, we intend to beat the heat to some extent.
This is was super discovery which we loved so much that I made on two consecutive days. Besides, it is so simple that even your kid can assemble it.
Category - Salads
Time taken - Under 10 minutes
Serves - 2
4 medium tomatoes - halved and each half cut into thirds
2 trianges of cheese - roughly pinched off ( I used Laughing Cow, Feta would be nice too)
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Freshly cracked black pepper
Salt to taste ( If using feta, go easy on the salt)
2 tbsp pine nuts- lightly roasted
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil ( optional)
In a bowl, mix in all the ingredients except nuts. Chill for an hour or so. Garnish with toasted nuts just before serving.
Spoon this salad between two slices of bread for a light, cold sandwich. I eat it just by itself.
