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:
1/Tomato Tarte Tatin, 2/Tomato and Cantaloupe Salad, 3/Creme Fraiche Galette with Heirloom Tomatoes, 4/Summer Pasta Salad, 5/Crispy Pancetta, Burrata and Tomato Sandwich, 6/Heirloom Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart, 7/Tomato Salad with Lemon and Mint, 8/Avocado, Ricotta, Tomato and Onion Tartine, 9/Tomato-Beet Salad,10/Cherry Tomato, Olive and Thyme Focaccia Bread
What's your favorite taste of summer?
Happy Monday! XO
