WARM TOMATO SALAD
Bridge to Health sponsors several Seasonal Detoxes and Fasts throughout the year. We are currently near the end of the Winter Seasonal Detox. Friday evenings of this two week detox end with a raw meal and fasting from Saturday to Sunday evening. I came home tired and starving after a busy day in which my only meal was three bites of a banana, a few sips of sesame milk and 4 ounces of veggie juice! I didn't want to stray to far out of the recommendations of a raw meal previous to the fast, but felt like I needed some warm comfort food. The recipe below is what I came up with! We had just harvested some beautiful heirloom tomatoes, yes in Feb, when you live in Scottsdale! I put those tomatoes to use with this warm salad and the results left us speechlessly munching it down with lots of nonverbal yummy sounds!
Fresh made or frozen zucchini spirals for "noodles" = to about 4 cups when cooked
4 - 5 medium sized ripe tomatoes, or 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
5 cloves of minced garlic
1 wax pepper finely diced
1/2 teaspoon 21 Salute from TJ's or any other herb blend of seasoning you prefer such Mrs. Dash or Spike
1/4 cup organic olive oil
