When I want to enjoy fresh tomatoes, I like to make a really simple tomato salad. All I do is drizzle tomato slices with good olive oil, season them with kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper, and serve them with some kalamata olives and feta cheese. It is so easy, yet so delicious and pleasing to the eye.
I really enjoyed the tomato salad. While the hothouse tomatoes didn't have the same magical, juicy burst of flavour that they get from the summer sun, they were still very tasty and well-matched to the briny cheese and olives. This dish was a great preview to what I will be privileged to enjoy in a couple of months.
Hurry up, tomato plants! I have big plans for you.
