Summer Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes

Sun soaked heirloom tomatoes are perfection in of themselves. They don’t need a bed of lettuce or anything superfluous. Slice them open, drizzle with a thin line of balsamic vinegar and taste the magnificence. After you’ve thoroughly enjoyed them in their simplicity, then perhaps it’s okay to top your Summer salad with a few and enjoy their succulence in spaced out bites.  

For this salad, I used a bed of mixed greens (arugula, chervil, mâché, baby romaine), topped with juicy heirloom tomatoes,  a mix of unsalted almonds, cashews, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, and a teaspoon of fresh bacon bits. With a light balsamic dressing; the combination was really quite delicious.
