Tomato, Pea and Goat Cheese Salad
Summer tomatoes. It makes you wonder why we eat any other kind... really.
And fresh peas? Yum!
These are two foods that just shine when they are in season.! Get them now while they are at their prime.
4 ripe, preferably organic, beefsteak tomatoes
1 cup shelled fresh peas
1/2 cup goat cheese or feta
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/4 cup chopped finely fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Whisk together all dressing ingredients.
Slice tomatoes a 1/4 inch thick and arrange slices evenly on a serving plate. Toss peas, goat cheese and drizzle dressing overtop.
