Tomato Salad

Okay, I’ve been having cupcakes for breakfast the past few days, I need to switch gears to something healthy.

The key to this recipe is the quality of the tomatoes. The recipe aims to bring out the natural flavor of the tomatoes, not disguise them with too many spices or dressings.

Recipe is for one person. Scale up accordingly.

Ingredients are approximate, as tomato sizes and personal preferences vary. If you’re not sure, start out on the low end, and slowly add more, tasting as you go, until it’s just right for you.

Ingredients:

1 tomato (vine ripe, campari, roma, whatever as long as it is fresh and yummy – you can tell it”s good if you slice the tomato open and it actually smells like tomatoes in your kitchen)

1/2 – 3/4 tsp sugar (to taste)

1/4-1/2 tsp salt (to taste)

1/4-1/2 tsp cumin powder (to taste)

1/8 tsp asafoetida (DO NOT ADD TOO MUCH OF THIS!!!!!!!)

twist of lemon or lime (if you like, it’s totally optional)

Directions:

Slice or dice tomatoes into bowl. Add all the ingredients to the tomatoes.

Mix well. Enjoy.
