- 6 ripe tomatoes, peeled and sliced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp. dried thyme or marjoram,
1/4 c. finely snipped parsley
1/4 c. snipped chives
2/3 c. salad oil
1/4 c. tarragon vinegar
Place tomatoes in bowl; sprinkle with seasonings and herbs. Combine oil and vinegar; pour over. Cover; chill 3 hours, spooning dressing over a few times. Drain off dressing and pass with tomatoes.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
