Homegrown Salt and Pepper Tomatoes

August 27, 2009

Tomatoes epitomize summer and I can’t think of a better hot-weather food than a ripe tomato fresh off the vine. This summer, my boyfriend and I grew our own tomato plants and lately we’ve been enjoying the literal fruits of our labor.

Because tomatoes are so delicious on their own, they don’t need much extra to enhance their flavor. Salt and pepper will do just fine. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive old with some coarse salt and fresh-cracked pepper over a few fresh chopped tomatoes you have a perfect salad (no lettuce needed) or side dish. I served up this beautiful, colorful bowl with lunch the other day and it was the perfect compliment to our summer meal. Simple and delicious.

tomatoes on their own in the summer are the best.

I remember eating them right off the vine at my grandparents house, still super warm from the sun shining on them. Good memories :)
