Tomato Salad Stack

Cajun French: le fromage (lu frō-maj) – cheese

 

platedAt the farmers market we found fresh tomatoes and our mouths were watering. Not wanting just a tomato salad, John’s creative mind went to work. The result was a tomato salad stack with a sweet/savory dressing. The best part of this salad is the taste can be changed by using different jams, dressings, and cheese. Have fun…

Mais C’est Bon!

Enjoy!!
