Angel Mama In The Kitchen~ Fresh Tomato Salad

Our family loves fresh tomatoes. They are such a treat. At our local farmers market we have a vendor who has become my favorite over the years. He has organic yellow salad cherry tomatoes that are divine. I bought many different kinds this weekend as well as all that have come in from our garden and am making oven provencal roasted sauce, drying tomatoes,etc. If have tomatoes to use up here is a great salad recipe.

Here is a recipe adapted from Paula Deens I have used over the years for a delightful salad.

Fresh Tomato Salad

3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
3/4 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
sprinkle of rosemary
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 to 3 green onions, chopped
4 to 6 large tomatoes, chopped or cut in wedges.

Combine all ingredients, except tomatoes, in a large measuring cup or mixing bowl. Whisk well. Place tomatoes in a resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over. Marinate at room temperature for up to 2 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
