Say hello to my new favorite Summer salad! This tasty vegetarian Marinated Tomato Salad is wicked easy to make and full of flavor!
First let's marinate those tomatoes! Quarter cherry tomatoes and slice onion into thin strips add to a medium bowl. Smash peeled garlic and mince into a paste. Season with a pinch of salt and add to veggies.Next add olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, freshly cracked black pepper, and fresh basil if you have some handy! Mix to coat the tomatoes and allow to sit at room temperature for 1-2 hours, sitring occasionally. These babies are well worth the wait and make a great salad topper that doubles as a dressing!
Next make the croutons. Preheat oven to 375°F and cut bread into cubes. Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil and add your bread. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss to mix. Bake for 10 minutes or until croutons are crispy and golden brown.
In a large bowl combine chopped lettuce with edamame and croutons. Top with marinated tomatoes/onion (along with all the tasty marinade) and feta cheese. Toss to coat and enjoy!
Feel free to add any extras of your favorite ingredients. You can even add additional veggies to the mix. Have fun with it!
Vegan friends: simply skip the optional feta and you're good to go!
