Two Basic Salads & Broccoli & Bacon Salad

I learned how to make these simple delicious salads in Italy. There is nothing better than wonderful tomatoes. The Italian tomatoes have a very thin skin and are delicious. Garden tomatoes are the best yet!

Heirloom tomato varieties have great taste if you can find them. Look for them at your local Farmer’s Market. xo
