Cherry Tomato Vinaigrette

One of the many ways we enjoy our cherry tomatoes when we want something a little more unique is to make them the featured ingredient in a vinaigrette, a very colorful, sweet yet tangy one, that we think you will enjoy as well.  You won’t need a lot for this recipe.  Just a cup will do.  We use both our red and Sungold varieties, and … Continue reading Cherry Tomato Vinaigrette

Caramelized Spring Onion and Roasted Tomato Herbed Galette with Greek Feta

Most of us in the U.S. have had sweet galettes with fruit-based fillings but we are going the savory route with this recipe.  We use caramelized Spring onions as the base filling and top them with oven roasted Roma tomatoes and Feta cheese.  We also add garlic, basil, and oregano to the half all purpose and whole wheat (both organic) dough to give the hearty … Continue reading Caramelized Spring Onion and Roasted Tomato Herbed Galette with Greek Feta
