We like to use heirloom tomatoes in this simple salad. They're at their peak during the summer months and worth seeking out at your local grocery store or farmers' market. Which varieties you choose is up to you--any will work well here. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2007

So refreshing and something about this combo created an amazing fruity taste as if we had added peaches or something. And with just 20 minutes or so of marinating with the tomatoes and dressing the fennel mellowed and softened to a delightful mild crunchy addition. Loved it even without the pine nuts didn't have any and made it for farmer lunch as a test. As a farm we are always looking for new ideas/recipes for products we grow to share with our members. Thanks for this inspiration. Read More

Fresh and colorful and yummy. We felt it was slightly too many pine nuts but that's easily adjusted. Also nice with tuna added for some extra protein. -Louise Read More
