Simple Farm Fresh Tomatoes
Tomatoes are a far cry from what they used to be. More often then not, store bought tomatoes are a pale red and almost white in color with no flavor. There is nothing like a vine ripe tomato that has been sweetened by the sun, and picked just moments before it reaches your mouth. It's rich red skin and sweet flesh. So when I came across these fresh beauty's at my local farmers market, I just couldn't help myself. It would truly be a sin to chop up them up and throw them into a boring everyday salad. Instead, these tomatoes are better enjoyed for what there are. Slice them into 1/4" slices, drizzle lightly with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and a scant of sea salt for a simple yet delectable flavor.
