South of France Tomato Salad
- 4 Large Ripe Red Tomatoes, Cored and Sliced
- 1 Bunch Basil, Leaves Removed from the stems
- 4 OZ Crumbled Goat Cheese
- 1 TB Red Wine Vinegar
- 2 TB Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I like California Olive Ranch)
- 1 Tsp Herbes de Provence

Alternate your tomato slices and basil leaves on a round platter, top with crumbled goat cheese and drizzle with vinegar and olive oil. Sprinkle with Herbes de Provence, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Enjoy!
No. 2 : Kitchen SCOOP
Herbes de Provence is a blend of Mediterranean herbs that make almost anything taste like the bright sunny days in the South of France. Although the blend varies depending on who is making it, it most often combines savory, marjoram, rosemary, thyme and oregano. Sometimes it also includes dried orange peel and lavender. If you don’t have Herbes de Provence, Italian Seasoning is a good substitute.
No. 3 : Clever Idea
This salad is inspired by the classic Italian Caprese. Simple and delicious with when you choose the best quality ingredients for the tomatoes, cheese and herbs. Of course, you can create salads from all over the world – for Spanish, try layering tomatoes with cilantro or parsley, grated Manchego cheese and a dressing made with sherry vinegar and Spanish olive oil. Give a nod to your favorite country using this simple template for a super salad.
