Heirloom Cherry Tomato Greek Salad

If you love the sweet goodness of heirloom tomatoes, you’ll love the baby or cherry variety.  I can eat them like candy, but they are the perfect addition to almost any salad.

They are especially good in the version of the Greek salad.

The heirloom cherry tomato Greek salad is the perfect side salad for any barbecue and just about any grilled meat or fish.  It is especially good with lemon chicken or my lightened version of Chicken Marbella.

Turn this into an entree salad by tossing this with crispy romaine and arugula.

Best Paloma Recipe – Tequila, Fresh Pink Grapefruit

The Worlds Best Paloma Recipe – The perfect combination of Tequila, fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice, and lime, salt-rimmed & topped with a little club soda. A Mexican vacation in a glass. This might be Mexico’s most popular tequila drink. This drink is traditionally made with Mexican grapefruit soda, but I think it’s too sweet so I started making this with fresh pink grapefruit juice, a little simple syrup, and club soda.
