Enjoy heirloom tomatoes as part many Mediterranean Diet Recipes!
The high season of summer has arrived. Our CSA farm share this week was bountiful with melons and many varieties of tomatoes. In addition to picking cherry tomatoes, our family’s haul included 3 pound heirloom tomatoes. A slice of tomato was bigger than a slice of bread!
At this time of year I turn to light meals using fresh ingredients. I had lots of tomatoes and yellow plums piling up, begging to be eaten. These were the perfect ingredients to create a refreshing and flavorful sauce to be paired with fish. We enjoyed this dish served with okra and onions prepared Italian style. Chunks of sourdough bread were great for wiping up the sauce.
