I was so excited to come back home from a trip, went to my veggies garden and found these beauties waiting for me. They are 100% organic, since after I begin the season with a great garden top soil, I only need to water them daily. Tomatoes drink water like there’s no tomorrow!
So, I decided to make a fresh simple salad using my garden tomatoes, my banana peppers, my jalapeno peppers my basil and a purchased onion. Then, I just drizzle balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Done.
