the real summer fruit

tomatoes are everywhere!
my csa delivery yesterday consisted of a HUGE bag of cherry and slicing tomatoes.

things i do with tomatoes:
toasted bread, sliced cheddar, sliced tomatoes, salt and pepper.
tomato sauce with zucchini, summer squash, onions and ancho peppers on top of fettuccine.
tomato, green beans and balsamic salad.
tomato and basil and mozzarella: on grilled flatbread, mixed together in a salad, popped into my mouth before i can properly mix them all together.
salsa with hot peppers from my garden, cilantro, lime and salt.
put them all in a glass vase with and call it a center piece (i hope my pictures of that turn out!)

tonight i'm going to roast them and put them alongside chicken breast.
any other ideas of what to do with tomatoes?

  1. i love your ideas.... and these shots! bon appetit!

  2. The tomato is a beautiful thing! I love to slow roast them with generous amounts of olive oil and salt, plop them in a jar, place them in the fridge, and snack on them daily.

  3. Oh yes, tomatoes. I just made a hug pot of tomato sauce with ripe tomatoes from the farmers market!! I love your ideas and I'll definitely try the zucchini+tomato dish...sounds so yummy!!

  4. Those tomatoes are gorgeous. Happy cooking!

  5. I just made an heirloom tomato salad this weekend and it was delicious! Wonderful ideas you've given.
