To-‘may’-to, to-‘ma’-to, how do you pronounce this word? No matter. When summer rolls around, my favorite item to get from the farmer’s market is the heirloom tomatoes. While it is much more expensive than the conventional kind, you can totally taste the difference. Heirloom tomatoes are juicy, sweet, and just plain nature’s candy. Yes. Tomatoes are fruits because fruits have seeds. Do not make this mistake again.
How do you like to use tomatoes? I keep it really basic by simply dicing them up along with cubed cucumbers and dress up this salad with good extra virgin olive oil and season with a dash of salt and black pepper. I throw in some chopped parsley if I have some on hand as well. Nothing complicated, yet so delicious and indulgent.
