Today, I ventured out to the most frequented store by us while we were ‘living it up’ here in the States: Costco (more about this trip in another post). One of the items we always bought on our trips to Costco was cherry tomatoes. M loves them – she eats them like fruits.
According to the label, they are pesticides free and product of Mexico. For a 2 lb , 32 oz (almost a Kilo) costs about $5.99 per box. As usual I used almost a pound of them to make the salad. It’s the simplest thing to do.
Just a reminder I don’t use specific measurements when I create dishes or cook. Seriously I don’t! Sorry! I do my best to give you estimated measurements here.
Here’s how you make it:
- cut the tomatoes into halves
- dice garlic into tiny pieces (how many – it’s up to you!)
- ~2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- ~3 tablespoon of olive oil
- dash of salt
- dash of oregano
- sprinkles of fresh rosemary (if not, dried flakes will do). I used fresh and organic because we have it the garden here in Texas. Lucky me!
- chili pepper flakes if you want to add some kick to this
My opinion? Kick it! 🙂 Add the chili pepper flakes! I didn’t add it here so M could eat it. And there you have it. You can use the sauce in the salad as a dip with your bread. Great way to start a meal, eh?
Enjoy my dish # 2 in Texas, status-post Chiang Mai, Thailand! It’s really like dish #4 or #5, but I’m not counting fried rice!
