Mini Heirloom Tomato & Rice Salad


We grow our own heirloom tomatoes in the summer garden, and fortunately our local market carries them the year round. This is a salad mix that works so well with fish and chicken dishes. It is a very versatile recipe that I sometimes use the base of the tomato mix as a Bruschetta topper. This mix has the best flavor and can even be served as a stand alone tomato salad. I love this recipe and hope you enjoy it!

3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped fine
Dressing
1/4 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon basil, chopped
1/2 teaspoon oregano, chopped
1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Directions
In a shaker jar, ( I use a fruit jar with a lid), pour in the Apple Cider Vinegar, Balsamic Vinegar, and olive oil.
Add the basil, oregano, parsley, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
Put the lid on the jar and shake the mixture until it is completely mixed.
In a large mixing bowl, add the chopped tomatoes, onions, and garlic and mix well.
Pour the liquid mixture over the tomato mixture and mix well.
Let set at room temperature for at least 1 hour before adding to the salad.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the cooked chilled rice and tomato mixture.
Refrigerate before serving.
