I’m hoping you’re not tomato-ed out yet! Today, I want to share a little info & inspiration about a few heirloom tomato varieties. (These are the ones I used in last week’s salad). They have such fun names, don’t they?

And for more recipe ideas, check out the Whole Foods heirloom tomato pinboard that I’ve been pinning to over the last few weeks:

    In my family, we eat them with every single meal. While I do love them with everything, nothing but nothing beats the perfect deliciousness of a simple tomato sandwich.

    Roasted if the weather is cool, but at this point in August…….sliced, a dash of salt, pepper and balsamic….all wrapped up in a lettuce leaf with a slice of fresh avocado! perfection!

  4. I love thick slices of tomato on top of garlic bread sprinkled with olive oil and feta cheese. I went to Laguna Beach in socal the other day and they had heirloom tomato flavored gelato. How funny!
