The Perfect 10: Terrific Tomato Recipes

Did you have a delicious weekend? Ours was lovely, bursting with the best that summer has to offer. Soaking up the sun, getting out on the lake, taking our bikes out for a spin. But I think the most summery moment was biting into the perfect tomatoes at our favorite neighborhood restaurant, The Harvest Vine. Served thinly sliced with just a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkling of herbs and garlic (and a glass or two of rosé), they simply sung with flavor.

Sweet and ripe, tomatoes are at their best wearing nothing at all - popped like candy. But here are 10 other ideas for what to do with August's best crop:

What's your favorite taste of summer? 

Happy Monday! XO


  1. Heaven........just had breakfast and hungry again!!

    1. Tomatoes for breakfast (or second breakfast) sounds like a great idea! XO

  2. Yum! I LOVE tomatoes, so am always looking for a new recipe to reinvent them...especial now that my garden is starting to really deliver:) Nothing like a fresh tomato. I love a fresh tomato and basil tart, or a tomato crostini or just a really simple tomato, basil and mozzarella salad.....and even a warm just picked tomato with a little sea salt and drizzle of olive oil...pure heaven!
    Enjoy your day:)

    1. Perfectly heavenly, Tina! Don't you just love summer? Hope you enjoy your day, too! XOXO

  3. that salad is the sexiest thing i have laid eyes on today! yum. i have a couple of heirlooms waiting for my fresh basil and olive oil. yum!


  4. The fresh garden tomatoes have been so flavorful this year and ALL of these recipes sound delish Jeanne! ps love your tomato art as well!

  6. Jeanne,
    My cooking has been lacking inspiration and I am a bit "off my game" but I created a platter of thinly sliced tomatoes last night and it was well loved by all. Thanks for always sharing dreamy inspiration!
