Tomato Salad with Parsley, Shallots and Garlic

This recipe is 100% inspired by my favorite French chef, Mimi Thorisson. Mimi’s cookbook, A Kitchen in France, takes my soul and imagination into her farmhouse in Medoc. I love this recipe.

 

 

I came upon this salad recipe, as I was adoring her life, cooking style and family, which she portrays beautifully in this cookbook.
This salad reminded me of a tomato salad my southern mother made often on Sunday. My mom’s recipe, included, cucumbers, onions, white vinegar,  sugar and of course tomatoes. I love my mom’s salad, but this one is very delicate and just as refreshing as moms.
The garlic I added, gives the salad a nice bite to it. It’s definitely one to eat with love ones.  Lol.
Enjoy and remember to Set the Table with Love.
