Summer Heirloom Tomato Salad

Summer Heirloom Tomato Salad

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.
