This time of year, I eat tomatoes at least twice a day.
I have so many (we overdid it and put in 10 different varieties....), so I have a tomato sandwich w/ mayo at least once a day and try to find ways to use a tomato in my breakfast omelet and salads.
I have been giving tomatoes away to neighbors, the bank teller, the mailman, my hairdresser and even my dentist.
I wish they wouldn't all come at once!
My fave varieties so far have been the Brandywine heirloom and the Striped German variety.
They are super large, funny looking, and taste like a tomato should taste like. I can smell them all day on my kitchen counter, the aroma is like a delicious perfume to me, and I love them.
Here, I made a great salad by slicing the heirlooms into wedges, putting some fresh mozzarella and a warm 6 minute boiled egg around them.
Sprinkle w/ sea salt, a splash of your favorite vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil.
Toss some capers around and finish with some white anchovies and fresh parsley.
A salad is born.
