Summer tomatoes

Is anything really better than tomatoes in summer? I’ve been eating them all the time. Juicy, sweet, flavorful–they’re nothing like the “tomatoes” you find the rest of the year. The colorful pints of bite-sized tomatoes at the farmers market have been a must-buy, even if I already have a counter covered in produce. But I’ve been making good use of all my tomatoes.

Cherry tomatoes, balls of mozzarella, basil, balsamic vinegar, oil, salt and pepper

Cool gazpacho: cucumbers, tomatoes, red pepper

Rachel is apparently saying I should share the gazpacho recipe. Here it is. Enjoy the summer tomato bounty!

    “I will like tomatoes when I’m 4” and then you still wouldn’t eat them for years! Do you remember when you finally saw the light?
