I felt a little guilty about having such a pathetic Meat-Free Monday picture, so here's a treat:
Fire and Ice Tomato Salad. Yum.
Slice one tomato.
Peel, de-seed, and slice one cucumber.
Thinly slice half of one red onion.
Place in dish.
1/2 cup olive oil, 3-4 tbsps red wine vinegar, one clove garlic, one jalapeno pepper (de-seeded, if you wish), 1 tsp salt, pepper to taste.
Blend in food processor.
Pour dressing over sliced veggies.
Cover and chill.
Eat. Say "YUM!"
AND, it's even better the next day! Mmm. Mmm.
If you're wondering about the beverage, it's my own concoction:
A Strawberry limoncellotini!
Put juice of one lemon and 2-3 oz of homemade strawberry limoncello over ice in a shaker.
SHAKE IT! SHAKE IT! SHAKE IT like you've got Parkinson's Disease!
Strain into chilled martini glass.
Drink. Say "YUM!"
