tis the season..tomatoes

One of the best things about summertime are tomatoes picked fresh from the garden, my friend Elaine came by this week with organic rutgers and romas from her garden and I’ve been eating tomato salads and sandwiches all week. So naturally sweet and juicy,  they need very little to dress them up.

Tomato Salad

1tsp red wine/sherry vinegar

1tsp lemon juice

1/2 clove of garlic (finely minced)

2Tbsp of your best extra virgin olive oil (I used arbequina evoo)

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

add whatever fresh herbs you like, I added some fresh thyme, rosemary and a chiffonade of fresh basil leaves

Toss some sweet maui onion slices into the dressing first, then mix in 4 tomatoes (cut into bite size pieces). I like anchovies so I tossed in a few too, some savory to balance the sweet tomatoes.
