Heirloom Tomato Salad macro 2

One of my favorite things about summer is Heirloom Tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market. They are expensive, usually over $4.50 per pound, but they are so tasty and so beautiful. They come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, allowing you so many different ways to present them. In my opinion, the best Heirloom Tomato Salad is just heirloom tomatoes (1-3 varieties), fresh basil, a good coarse salt, and freshly ground pepper. Nothing else. I love their natural flavor and don’t want to mask them in any way. Yet, when I serve these just like this, people often ask me, what did I do to make these tomatoes so delicious? The secret is restraint and allowing mother nature to shine.
