A Farmer's Market trip and tomato salad

Today was another Trip to the Farmer's Market.
On today's list:
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 4 lemons
  • 1 lime
  • 4 ears of corn
  • 1 orange
  • garlic
  • 3 vine ripe tomatoes
  • 2 yellow or orange tomatoes
  • milk
  • chopped nuts
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • honey
  • And Jeni's Ice Cream, for tomorrow night's dessert--honey vanilla bean and raspberry yogurt
All that yummy goodness!

With that, I made:

Tomato Salad
(adapted from Rachael Ray's Thirty Minute Meals 2)

3 vine-ripe red tomatoes
2 tomatoes, either yellow or orange
1 sm. onion, thinly sliced
1/2 c. fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
3 tbsps. extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 ripe lemon
1/2 tsp. ground corriander
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Kosher salt, to taste

Seed and cop the tomatoes and combine with onion and parsley in shallow bowl. Combine oil, lemon juice and spices and whisk together. Season with kosher salt and toss to combine well. Let stand 10 minutes and serve.

This is also very timely, because this weekend is the annual Tomato Festival in my town!
