Do you like the sunlight on the counter? This was around 3:30 on a SUNNY Sunday afternoon. I am normally at work at this time. If I ever decide to become a "Lady of Leisure", I will have to invest in some blinds.
I started adding some slices of fresh mozzarella.
And it can only get better with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Gosh, this picture looks so good, I am ready to grab a fork!
Then, taking advantage of the sunlight - I let them rest on the counter and absorb some rays.
Meanwhile - I began to dice the remaining tomato pieces.
Then put them in a small canning jar:
I am copying from an idea from Susan Branch on her new blog at susanbranch.com. Unfortunately I did not have as many tomatoes as she had, nor all the fresh ingredients. Oh well, improvise!
A generous sprinkle of dried herbs and a heaping teaspoon of garlic.
Cover with Olive Oil.
And give it a little stir. Cover and let steep on the sunny window sill until dinner.
I swear I can hear the flavors from that jar calling out to me! Below is a picture of a similar salad from last year on a pretty green glass plate I got in a box lot at an auction.
Plan for the weekend: Find a Farmers Market!
