Harvest on the Table ~ First Tomato of the Season
The first tomato of the season is alway a delight. How best to enjoy it? Straight off the vine, eaten like an apple? In a sandwich? And, if so, which sandwich? While a BLT is always a good choice, my personal favourite for fresh garden tomatoes is on whole wheat toast with mayo, homemade dill pickles, and cheddar cheese. Or, perhaps in a salad, perhaps a Greek salad; or more simply, the tomato with feta and oregano tossed with olive oil and red wine vinegar?
In the end, I decided to have it on a cracker with a smudge of cream cheese. A cherry tomato only goes so far anyway ;-)
