Fresh Summer Tomato Salad A La Bronx Style!

Fresh Tomato Salad Over A Whole Wheat Round Biscuit.

My absolute favorite summertime lunch! My mom would make this in the summer for us. As children we loved this meal. Another option would be a fresh tomato salad, served with Italian cheese like provolone or Caciocavallo with a loaf of sliced Italian Casa bread only from Addeo Bakery  So Simple but - oh so delish! Thanks Mom~

P.S. this also makes a great summer dinner appetizer....
