Tomato Salad with Olives and Lemon Zest

Now that The Aspiring Kitchen is bringing olives to the Market,  it’s time to get cooking.  Our farm stand vendors have fresh tomatoes and Marvalhas has premium olive oil.  You can also use grapeseed oil from Wild Tree.  Many of the oils are flavored so get creative.  Top it off with parmesan from The Cheese People.
