Easy Tomato Salad & William Bounds Grill Mill Review

wblogo In my garden I have fresh tomatoes and basil growing.  Those are the two key ingredients for my fresh tomato salad.  This is one of the easiest and most nutritious “recipes” I know of, and it’s great as a side dish or as a topping on salad or over fresh mozzarella (Yum!). In the summertime, I’ll make a meal of it. 

You can adjust the recipe to your taste and omit anything you might not like which is why this is so easy (some people I know like this without the red onion), but this is how I make it.

Tomato and Basil Salad
Ingredients -
4 fresh tomatoes
1-2 tablespoons fresh basil (chopped)
1 small red onion
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
pinch salt
pepper

Cut tomatoes into 1/4” slices, then slice in half.  Do the same with the red onion.  In a bowl, whisk the vinegar, oil and salt (to taste).  Add the tomatoes and onions and mix well.  Top salad with a few springs of basil and add fresh pepper. 

For that last finishing touch, I used the William Bounds 5-Inch Stainless Steel Grill Mill. The Grill Mill crushes the peppercorns (or sea salt) as opposed to standard054 mills that grind them.  William Bounds promises that it will never jam or wear down, and it is backed by a lifetime warranty.

I’m a righty and my husband is left-handed , so the other benefit of this grill mill is that it’s comfortable for both of us to use as it works in a back and forth motion.  The fineness of the pepper is adjustable as well.  The design is very manly with a textured stainless steel surface which makes it perfect for summertime grilling.

The William Bounds 5-Inch Stainless Steel Grill Mill is available at Amazon.com for $29.95 and ships for free within the U.S.

I was not compensated for this post, but I was provided with a product sample in order to facilitate my review.
