Hey EverydayMrs readers! I’m back today with an amazing post brought to you on behalf of Whole Foods but as always all opinions are 100% my own and EverydayMrs approved.
If you’ve been to Whole Foods, especially lately, you’ve probably seen some amazingly colorful fresh produce. Including these beautiful heirloom tomatoes that come in bright red, slightly green, and orangeish. I love to eat (and cook) fresh, yummy food. I try to serve my husband and I healthy (ish) food because hey, sometimes you just need a cookie, or fried cheese with those lovely tomatoes.
This recipe was actually from the Whole Foods email newsletter. Do you receive those? If not you definitely should, they include amazing recipes from bloggers (insert raising hand emoji), that is typically using the produce and or other foods that are in season at your local Whole Foods.
When I saw this recipe I immediately thought of my mom and her love for tomatoes so I knew that I had to make it for Sunday dinner. It was definitely a hit and I plan on making it again. To make this easy fresh “salad” you will need:
1 lg heirloom tomato (or any tomato you prefer)
1 pkg of halloumi cheese
salt and pepper
*all of my fresh ingredients were bought at my local Whole Foods
I first cut up my tomato and arranged it on my plate, then I started to heat up some EVOO in a pan to pan fry my halloumi cheese (it took just a couple minutes each side) add that to your plate of tomatoes sprinkle with dill, basil, salt, pepper, drizzle with EVOO and you have yourself an amazing salad!
Another thing that I’ve been planning to try after receiving this Spiral Vegetable slicer were zoodles. Have you tried zoodles? Been curious about them? I know I was so I went to Whole Foods picked up one large zucchini and some pesto sauce. Then I went out to my backyard and picked some fresh cherry tomatoes to put on top.
Can you believe this is just from one zucchini? After sending it through my spiralizer to make my zoodles I sautéed them in some olive oil then added the pesto and added my cherry tomatoes to the top. Can you say yum? I was actually surprised how much I liked them, I wouldn’t compare them to regular noodles and have not tried to make anything like lasagna or spaghetti with them as I think it makes for a completely different meal. If you’re looking for an option to change it up for your lunch or dinner while being healthy(ish) this is a great option for you!
So do you try to eat healthy in your home? What are your go to’s?
