What’s Cooking Wednesday — Two Summer Recipes

With sum­mer on its way, sal­ads and grilling rise to the fore­front. Here are two recipes I made over the hol­i­day weekend.

Toma­toes Vinaigrette

Tri Tip & Tomato Salad

This is a great tomato salad, but it would also be good to use for any salad dressing.

1/3 c oil
3 T. wine vine­gar
1 t. oregano
1/2 t. salt
1 clove gar­lic, pressed or minced
1/4 t. pep­per
1/4 t. dry mustard

Minced onion
Mix every­thing together. Pour over sliced or quar­tered toma­toes. (Peel them if you’re so inclined, but I’m not!) Cover & refrig­er­ate 2–3 hours or overnight. At serv­ing time, sprin­kle with minced onion & pars­ley. (Note: in the pic­ture, it’s shown served over farro.)

Gar­lic Marinade

I used this for a tri-tip, but you can use what­ever meat you want. Flank steak would be good, too.

3 cloves gar­lic, pressed or minced
1/4 t. thyme
1/4 t. mar­jo­ram
1/4 t. oregano
1 T Worces­ter­shire sauce
1/3 c. oil
1 c dry red wine
1 onion, sliced (I used about 1T of dried minced onion)
1 bay leaf
Salt & Pep­per to taste.
Mix every­thing together and use to mar­i­nate your favorite grilling meat.

  1. Yum! These look good, Terry. Will have to try both, hubby loves toma­toes espe­cially this time of year.

    We’ve been using more mari­nades since we got the Fore­man grill & can grill regard­less of the weather.
