Marinated Tomatoes (1 of 1)-4

I know I’m not the only one that likes to sometimes add fresh vegetables to what may be a takeout or frozen meal.  I love adding a fresh element to brighten up the meal and at the same time it’s added nutritional value doesn’t hurt.   Marinated Tomatoes (1 of 1)

Marinated Tomatoes (1 of 1)-5Publix carries a variety so be sure to pop in and look for the Naturally Rising, Brick oven or the new Artisan crust; be sure to take advantage of the in-store promotion from 5/19 – 6/8 where you can get 2 Freschetta Pizzas for $10 I used the Naturally Rising crust and was pleasantly surprised.    Marinated Tomatoes (1 of 1)-10For my tomato salad I used campari tomatoes but any type of tomato will work well.  The tomatoes were cut into wedges then tossed in homemade vinaigrette which is so simple to make.  I always make vinaigrette rather than buy the store bought stuff because it takes just a few minutes to make and it tastes so much better.Marinated Tomatoes (1 of 1)-11
