The whole family is crazy for good summer tomatoes. So far they have been so-so but pretty soon we will be drowning in fresh tomatoes from our garden and the local farmer’s market. My fave way to eat them, is sliced with a little Himalayan sea salt sprinkled on top.
But the tastiest version that we make for snacks and meals is just sliced tomatoes, a thin slice of soft mozarella cheese, drenched in EVOO, vinegar, and dried Italian herbs. In the heat of the summer I think the kids and I could eat this for lunch and dinner… just a plate of tomatoes. Leave out the cheese and you still have a spectacular dish. It is a little slice of heaven on earth…
What’s your favorite summer snack or quickie meal idea?
