Tomato Salad

Tomato Salad Recipe

This is one of my favourite salads and is so quick and east to make.  Cherry tomatoes are very flavourful and are also rich in lycopene. Defined as an antioxidant, lycopene helps to prevent diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and cataracts while helping to keep skin looking vibrant and youthful.

Although it is not yet scientifically proven, some scientists suggest that the body's absorption of lycopene is increased when tomatoes are in contact with oil. That makes this salad a perfect source for lycopene.

Ingredients:
Cherry tomatoes (1/2 pint per person)
Green Onion (1 per person)
Feta Cheese
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Freshly Cracked Pepper

Directions:
Chop cherry tomatoes in half and green onion into small segments. Crumble the feta over the salad (I like to use goat feta, but you can use cow or sheep feta as well). Add pepper and drizzle with olive oil.

Enjoy!
