Heirloom Tomato Salad

My parents went to see Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza on Friday, and afterwards they came to my house for dinner (my first dinner party!) Only we didn’t have anything to eat, so we swung through Whole Paycheque Foods and came back to my place to make dinner.

Did I mention my mother is a world-class chef?

So anyway, we had a lovely dinner: some sautéed red chard, green olive bread from Terra Breads with a lovely Quebec brie cheese, chicken sausages (which, unfortunately, were the least impressive part of the meal), cobbed corn, and an heirloom tomato salad.

Which was the most delish thing ever.

Which means it’s recipe time!

Heirloom Tomato Salad
