Summer time is winding down.
I am getting the last of my tomatoes and my cucumbers are long gone.
I have stacks of pickles sitting on my shelf waiting to be put in a basket during the Advent season.
It is fun to give these as gifts and see peoples faces.
For now, I will try to enjoy my harvest with these wonderful and ripe heirloom tomatoes.
This dish is so good and so easy to make.
Sometimes the simple things are the best.
1 pound of tomatoes
2 tablespoons sea salt
1 tablespoon pepper
3 tablespoons basil
2 tablespoons red wine or balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic minced
Slice tomatoes in half. Season with salt and pepper. Make a dressing of basil, vinegar, oil and garlic. Drizzle with dressing to coat. Garnish with basil leaves.
Peace be with you,
