I got 4 lbs of hothouse tomatoes for .99, yes that's 99 cents for the whole bag and they were all usable.
You need to check them over pretty good but I figure that if about half of what I get is usable, I'm still money ahead and my friend's chickens love me because they get the rest.
Just an F.Y.I. you can freeze the tomatoes whole. They will be good for stews/soups and salsa, but won't hold up to being sliced or be good in salads.
This is a popular Middle Eastern salad and according to the cookbook, it's Turkish in origin. The lemon-based vinaigrette is fresh and tangy.
I think it would be good for potato salad also. I like a mayonnaise alternative during the hot summer months.
Besides the tomatoes and cucumbers, you'll need a lemon, mint, parsley, olive oil, salt, and pepper and black olives.
Onions are not listed in the ingredients nor mentioned in the instructions but are typically used.
And that's that!
