Italian Style Tomato Salad

I love our local Farmer’s Market.  Orofino (Idaho) has a short market — mid-June to mid-October — but I enjoy bringing home all kinds of new veggies that I normally cannot get during the year.

Of course, that gives me that much more ingredients to come up with new salad recipes.

This recipe started with a pint of cherry/grape tomatoes I purchased ….. I added a few other veggies I had on hand and came up with this Tomato Salad:

Italian Style Tomato Salad

Italian Style Tomato Salad


  • 1 pint of cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup zucchini, sliced and quartered
  • 1 small can of sliced black olives
  • 1 green onion. sliced in small pieces
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 6 drops of stevia


  1. Mix all the veggies in a large bowl.
  2. Toss with oil, vinegar and seasonings.
  3. Add Stevia drops as needed!

The salad was a bit oily, but very tasty.  I think next time I make it, I am going to slice up some fresh mushrooms to add to it.
