Our Simple Pleasures

celebrating life one moment at a time

This is a favorite in our house.  Punky would eat this everyday if I made it for him.  I can’t complain—-it’s pretty healthy!   I just can’t wait for summer when our tomatoes are growing in the garden.  It’s pretty tough to find yummy tomatoes in the grocery store now.  Give his favorite a try……

Punky’s Salad

5-6 Fresh tomatoes, diced

Olive oil – drizzle

fresh pressed garlic – 1-2 cloves depending on the number of tomatos……I’ve also been known to totally forget the garlic, and it’s still a hit!

Kosher salt – 1 teaspoon

Sugar – 1 Tablespoon

Fresh pepper

Italian Seasoning  (I used my favorite Penzey’s Spice called “Tuscan Sunset”)

Red Onion, chopped (a little goes a LONG way!)

Green Pepper, chopped

I chop up the tomatoes, red onion , green pepper, and place in a medium size bowl.   Add garlic and stir gently.  Sprinkle kosher salt, sugar, pepper, and italian seasoning over the top and gently mix.  Drizzle olive oil over the top.  Let stand 10-15 minutes for flavors to combine.  Serve.

Punky eats in out of the bowl….and one “batch” is never enough.  We also serve it over toasted french bread, chicken breasts, etc……it’s pretty versatile and super tasty!
