One of the best parts about life is experiencing new things. It’s so easy for us to get stuck in our ways, caught up in the routine of the day-to-day and forget all that exists outside of our comfort zone.
This week I challenged myself to do something a little different. The result? I’m now in love with Bollywood dancing. I joined a dance studio here in Seattle and have been trying out Bollywood and hip hop classes. So far, Bollywood is winning in my book… mostly because I can’t seem to pop my hips and shoulders like a hip hop dancer.
You know what else I tried this week? A summer heirloom tomato salad mixed with fruit. Yum. Maybe I can’t convince to try Bollywood dancing (it is fun though, I promise), but perhaps you can be persuaded to break the inevitable food rut and enjoy some heirloom tomatoes as well?
I kept this recipe really simple: Fresh, local heirloom tomatoes. Crisp spinach. And perfectly ripe berries. I added a sprinkling of fresh sea salt on the tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil. Heaven.
What are your favorite ways to enjoy heirloom tomatoes? (and get out of your routine?)
- 8 cups fresh spinach
- 1 pound heirloom tomatoes, sliced
- 1 cup berries
- Drizzle of olive oil
- Sea salt, to taste
- Divide spinach amongst 4 plates. Top with tomatoes and sprinkle with berries. Add a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt to taste.
