This is the salad to make with tomatoes from the farmers' market or your backyard, ideally when they're still warm from the sun. The surprise is the easy homemade cheese. Prep and Cook Time: about 20 minutes (excluding cheese).

How to Make It

Step 1

Slice large tomatoes; leave small tomatoes whole, or cut in wedges or halves. Arrange on a platter with cheese.

Step 2

In a small bowl, whisk 1 tsp. salt, the vinegar, and honey until salt is dissolved; whisk in olive oil. Spoon over tomatoes.

Step 3

Strip marjoram leaves and flowers from sprigs onto salad. With kitchen scissors, snip basil leaves and flowers over tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt to taste.

Step 4

Simple, easy and delicious!! Herbed cheese w/the tomato mixture and basil is classic but the dressing is great...love red wine vinegar!

This was a simple, easy way to use our garden tomatoes. Nothing special, though.
