I made this tomato and feta salad today to feed the beast that's living inside me demanding more tomatoes. Here's what it looks like:
YUM. So here's the basics of what is in it. I just kinda eye balled it so I don't have exact measurements to give you. I just add a little more of what I like and add a little less of what I don't.
Organic grape tomatoes, sliced in half
Feta cheese, cut into small chunks
Red onion, chopped
White wine vinegar
Fresh ground pepper
Kosher salt (not a lot because the feta is rather salty itself)
Throw it all in a bowl, stir carefully, and enjoy! My only suggestion is to go easy on the onions, unless of course you are a big onion lover. I am not, and I added just a smidge too much tonight.
I googled tomato cravings today because I was thinking that maybe my body is trying to tell me that I was lacking some nutrient that tomatoes offer. I haven't found much yet, but I am going to keep looking. I did read something about it being linked to iron-deficient anemia...there was a case of a woman that ate 6-10 whole tomatoes a day for a long time, then once she started treament for iron-deficient anemia, her tomato craving went away. Hmm..something to think about.
Why can't my body just crave multi-vitamins?? Maybe then I'd remember to take them consistently. Lol.
