Last Tomato Salad


New classes, new activities, new harvest produce. No more homeworkless evenings, no more grilled vegetable salads (mostly because no more grill), no more lazy mint limeade.

Of course, I can't wait for fall foods -- caramel apples particularly. But walking through the farmer's market this morning, nostalgia struck for the days of summer vegetables. Thus, we have the season's last tomato salad, an homage to all of the tomato salads of the past few months. You tasted really, really good.

2 large yellow tomatoes, chopped into bite-size pieces
6 Roma tomatoes, chopped into bite-size pieces
1/4 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup basil, chopped
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt

Mix the chopped tomatoes together, add the olive oil, balsamic, and basil, then add the seasonings to taste. Toss together and serve over lettuce.
