Tomato Ranch Salad

100_4742[1]

My apologies I don’t have a picture of the salad. I didn’t intend on writing a blog post with this recipe. I only intended to use up some of the many tomatoes my Dad sent me from his garden. I threw stuff into a bowl and served it to people on a whim. But after everyone raved about it I figured, maybe I should write down what I did. Because (as usual) it was quite easy. Here’s all I used:

3 tomatoes

1 zucchini

1 cucumber

1/2 onion

1/2 tablespoon minced garlic

1/3 cup Ranch dressing

Parmesan Cheese

Cube the zucchini and boil it for a few minutes so that it’s not as hard. I didn’t cook it completely. Cube tomato, cucumber and onion. Combine all ingredients in a serving bowl and mix them together. Leave salad in the fridge for 1 hour. Then it’s ready to serve!




Tomato Garlic Tilapia

After 6 days of the stomach bug, it was nice to make a real meal again! Tilapia seemed the perfect, light comfort food for our newly healthy tummies. I make this meal in foil packets for each serving, so below are ingredients and instructions for a single serving. Obviously multiply by however many people you wish to feed. 🙂

  • 3 oz tilapia filet
  • 1/2 tsp of butter
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 a chopped tomato
  • Pepper and old bay seasoning to taste

Preheat oven to 425. Place tilapia on tinfoil and top with all other ingredients. Wrap tinfoil around the tilapia and cook for about 20 minutes.

And yes I had mine with a side of onion rings. Because they cook at the same temperature. 😉
