Frisee salad with heirloom tomatoes

This is quite a nice summer salad. Fresh, colorful, crispy and light. Serve it with your favorite raw milk cheeses, nice salami and a crispy country bread for the perfect summer lunch/brunch.

Serves 2

1/2 bunch frisee salad, cleaned and chopped bite size
1/2 medium size yellow, purple and orange heirloom tomatoes, chop in 1/2 inch cubes
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 medium size garlic clove, minced
3 tblsp fresh basil, chopped
1/2 tsp red crushed chile pepper
Salt and pepper

In mixing bowl combine; olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, basil, red crushed chile pepper, salt and pepper. Add tomatoes and marinate a little while (10-15 minutes). Transfer frisee to serving platter & top with the tomatoe salad with all the dressing, don't leave any behind, the best part is to soak your bread in the yummie tomates juices.
