I hope you had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. We spent the majority of the weekend relaxing and enjoying family time. We saw a movie, spent time with friends, made a quick shopping trip to the city, enjoyed brunch and dinner with our families and of course had the All-American Memorial Day BBQ.
For the BBQ, I decided to bring a simple tomato salad. Seriously, this salad took maybe 10 minutes to throw together.
5-6 medium tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup basil
2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove of garlic
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed
4 oz. parmesan cheese, shaved
I combined the cheese and tomatoes in a bowl. In a food processor, I combined the basil, vinegar, olive oil, and garlic to make a thick "dressing." I poured the dressing over the tomato mixture, coated everything, garnished it with a few more basil leaves and called it a day.
All in all, this was the perfect weekend to end a happy month and we certainly did celebrate May, as my mom's calendar page indicated.
