Take six firm red tomatoes, wash and wipe them neatly, slice them in thin slices with a very sharp knife. Line a salad bowl with lettuce leaves, lay the sliced tomatoes in, sprinkle with salt and pepper, serve with French dressing.

I tried out the above recipe, using my own tomatoes that I grow in a wood planter. Here are some of the tomatoes ripening on the vine.

Using some store bought lettuce, I broke up some lettuce leaves into pieces, and placed the in a glass bowl for the salad.

Next I sliced up the tomatoes and put the tomato slices on top of the lettuce.

Finally I poured some French dressing from the grocery store onto my tomato salad. I skipped adding any salt or pepper. It still tasted good, and was a nice, and very easy and quick to prepare cold salad.
