Heirloom Tomato Salad
Catana Tully, author of Split at the Root, our Fooide Lit review this week, told me one of her favorite meals was an Heirloom Tomato Salad. I had to ceate one!
I cut up Heirloom Tomatoes, a few thin slices of cucumber, green pepper and red onion and splashed Balsamic Vinaigrette on the salad. I added a few cherry tomatoes on top.
All I can say—I can see what Catana meant! Try this salad now when these vegetables are in season. Heirloom Tomatoes have a special flavor and a beautfiul look.
Heirloom Tomato Salad is great for a side or use it for a wonderful lunch or light dinner.
Thank you to those in the military and first responders who have served and sacrificed for our country.
Catana Tully's memoir, Split At the Root, takes us on an intense journey into identity, motherhood and what labels mean. At times despondent, at time joyful, the author pulled herself apart until she found her core.
Catana's two mothers were very different from the other. Her birth mother was a Guatamalen of color and the mother who raised her a white German. Today, Catana checks the "other" box on forms regarding her identity.
Her search for identity nearly broke her apart. How Catana Tully puts herself back together is a story worth reading.
