We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Great And Easy Salad

I had a bagful of tomatoes of various kinds : Mortgage lifter, Cherokee purple, Goliath etc. What to do, what to do?

So I chopped them up, along with a cucumber and a small amount of onion, and a touch of fresh basil. Then I sprinkled about 4 oz or so of feta on top and poured  a homemade garlic vinaigrette dressing  over it and popped it in the fridge.

My husband and I had this for lunch. There is nothing like tomatoes from the garden. Easy and delicious.


  1. How was Morgage and Goliath on taste? I know CP already but haven't tried others.

    1. I like Mortgage Lifter Jenny for a salad. Goliath, I prefer on a sandwich. However, it worked out well mixing all of these tomatoes together in a salad.

  2. This looks so good! I am patiently waiting for my cherokee purples to ripen. :)
