Return of the Ugly Ripe Tomato (Found an unpublished post)

(Written on 8/30/2010)Ugly Tomato and Sprouts

I found the most awesome deal on Ugly Ripe Tomatoes the other day. It was a 4-pack for a very good price!! I snatched it right up. I've said before that these are my favorite variety of Florida tomato!! And boy was I pleased with this batch. They are so juicy and flavorful.
Well I decided to make a salad with my Ugly Tomato as the focal point. I needed some greens and sprouts with it, of course, so I served it on a bed of organic red leaf lettuce, topped it with three types of sprouts and drizzled on a simple dressing. My 4 year old and 2 year old were happy eating thick slices with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. My 6 year old had some bean sprouts with his favorite, simple honey mustard dressing that Mommy makes. Gotta love kids loving veggies!!
Here is the easy recipe:

Ugly Ripe Tomato Plate
1 large Ugly ripe tomato, cut into thick rounds
4 leaves of organic red leaf lettuce, chopped
1 handful of bean sprouts
2 handfuls of red clover sprouts
1 handful of sprouted brown lentils

That is as uncomplicated as it gets! Now just drizzle on your favorite RAW dressings.

~JMJ~ Today I am grateful for an easy day of homeschooling. It is only the first day of week two and I am happy to report that it went really well. I am so proud of my children's accomplishments already. It amazes me how fast they excel when given the opportunity. I don't stifle them...I let them lead the way and it always proves to be successful. I pray for strength and good health to keep up with all of them. :)

Your salad looks delicious. One of my goals for this winter is to make my own sprouts for salad toppings...I love sprouts.
