WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina.
This week, Brian and Lisa feature a fresh and light tomato salad with vinaigrette dressing perfect for summer. Though Lisa recommends heirloom tomatoes for their colorful look, diverse varieties and fresh taste, any type of tomato can be used. N.C. tomatoes and peaches are currently in season and can be found at markets and stores across the Tarheel state through the end of the summer and into the fall.
You can find local ingredients for this salad and other recipes at farmers markets and roadside stands across the state. To find a location near you, go to www.ncfarmfresh.com.
