I hate to sound like a broken record but I still am not cooking or baking. I mean cooking is down to the bare minimum if I can handle that. The humidity this summer in the NE is fierce! Every summer I love making my famous tomato pie, but I just can't turn that oven on lately. To satisfy my tomato pie craving I made a fabulous tomato salad filled with sharp cheddar, crispy walnuts, and a hint of dill (although I think tarragon might be interesting next time).
Something about tomatoes and cheese; they are the perfect pairing aren't they?
Cook Notes: the next time I make this I will use a hearty 12-grain bread, it went ok with the sourdough roll, but it really would pair better with nice, texture grain bread. Adding some fresh tarragon might be interesting next time too. The dill was good, but don't add in too much.
tomato, cheddar & walnut salad
(no measurements added, since you can add as much or as little as you like)
ripe heirloom tomatoes, chopped 1-inch pieces
sharp white cheddar, chopped 1-inch pieces
fresh ground pepper (salt is really not needed)
fresh dill or tarragon (not too much)
Mix all together, refridgerate a bit then serve on your favorite bread or over lettuce.
