Insalata della Nonna

I recently did a recipe newsletter for Doen (one of my favorite brands, I literally always wear them) and I wantd to share the recipe here. This is Insalata della Nonna, a really simple and refreshing Sicilian tomato salad that's perfect for when it's super hot. It's delicious, takes three seconds, and you don't need a ton of ingredients.
-tomatoes (the freshest you can find)
-good olive oil (Baronciniiiiii)
The salad should be customized to your liking so measure with your heart. Chop the tomatoes, add a ton of onion (sliced as thin as possible so it doesn't overpower the tomato), and then add the dried oregano. Toss everything with a bit of olive oil and top with thin slices of ricotta salata. You can easily add a protein to this or any other ingredients you'd like. It's the perfect thing to serve to guests too because it's delicious but SO fast.
And speaking of entertaining (which I will write a full story about when I have time!!), the thing I love about Doen is that their clothes are romantic and comfortable. Not an ad I swear, I just legitimately always wear their stuff. So I can be cooking and running around and cleaning my house while wearing any of these clothes and I don't feel constricted. I wanted to share some favorites.
First, I love polka dots. They are my favorite print preferably in black and white, but I feel like it's a hard pattern to master. They can easily look cheesy but this print is SO good. I tell myself I'll wear it with bright red lipstick but then I never do. I'm wearing the Aubrey dress here but basically lived in the Loren shorts when I was in Italy.
Little white dresses come summertime are my absolute favorite looks. I prefer longer silhouettes but go back and forth between fit - I love looser styles for family days and tighter tops for when date nights and having people over. I'm wearing the Melaine dress.
