Favorite Summer Tomato Salads
I’ve updated my list of favorite summer tomato salads with so everyone with a garden can take full advantage of them before fresh tomato season is gone!
Before I talk about Summer Tomato Salads I want to mention what a scary few days it’s been in my life. At 1:00 a.m. on Thursday night I was awakened to someone pounding on my door saying “FIRE, you must leave immediately,” and within a few hours this horrible fire was covering a big part of the mountain that’s behind my house. It’s been an emotional and disruptive few days. But I’m safe and my house is okay too, and I am feeling grateful to the amazing firemen, police, and other responders in my area who worked diligently to protect us and save our homes. Now let’s talk about tomato salads!
There’s no other seasonal food I love more than ripe summer tomatoes, and when good tomatoes are available, I have to indulge in them even if they aren’t that low in carbs. I first shared my picks for Favorite Summer Tomato Salads years ago, but of course I’ve made a lot more tomato salads since then. That’s partly why this post now has 20 Tomato Salads that I felt just had to be included!
I’m pretty sure I’m not the only low-carb eater who has to indulge in garden tomatoes when they’re in season, so I hope these Summer Tomato Salads might include one or two that will become favorites at your house! You can use Tomato Recipes to find more recipes to use those garden tomatoes if you’re lucky enough to have some!
Tomato, Olive, and Fresh Mozzarella Salad uses those little balls of fresh mozzarella that are so good in salad, but if you can’t find those just cut fresh mozzarella into cubes to make this tasty salad!
