Well we aren’t quite there yet, but we’re close. Tomato season is almost here! We put our tomato plants in the ground in the beginning of June so in the next few weeks I hope to see (and pick) all the fresh tomatoes I can dream of! To get you ready for tomato picking season, I created this yummy Roasted Tomato Salad which is perfect as an appetizer, a side dish, a snack (I eat them with a fork!) or you can throw the tomatoes on a sandwich (like grilled cheese!) or into pasta. These roasted tomatoes are super versatile and super yummy so I hope you enjoy them.
To make this fresh tomato recipe you want to start with some juicy fresh ripe vine tomatoes. Gorgeous tomatoes, aren’t they? Alternatively you can use cherry or heirloom tomatoes! In my opinion, use what’s fresh at the farmers market or use what’s growing in your garden!
After slicing, add them to your nonstick pan and drizzle with olive oil, garlic powder and salt + pepper. Put them into the oven for 25 minutes.
After you let them cool down (so you can touch them), put them on a serving plate and then add fresh greens. The kind of green is totally up to you depending on what’s seasonal. Below, I’m using fresh spinach straight from the garden, but you can also use basil, cilantro, lettuce, arugula, etc.
- 2 pounds of ripe on the vine tomatoes - sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt + pepper to taste
- beautiful chopped greens (use what you have on hand, options: basil, cilantro, lettuce, spinach, arugula, etc)
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Slice your tomatoes so they are individual slices, about 1/4 inch thick.
- Place tomatoes on a nonstick baking sheet.
- Drizzle olive oil on tomatoes. Sprinkle garlic powder, salt and pepper.
- Bake for 25 minutes.
- Take out of the oven and place on serving plate.
- Add chopped greens on top of the tomatoes.
- Serve and enjoy!
