Presenting 6 tomatoes prepared 4 ways. Every single way celebrated the excellent flavor of tomatoes picked from the vine at the peak of ripeness for the recipe.
Simple and delicious - tomato #1 was sliced, laid on buttered toast, and topped with a scrambled egg with a sprinkle of cheese. Breakfast perfection.
Complex (but easy) and flavorful - tomatoes #2 and #3 were chopped, drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with thyme and roasted in the oven. Used on home-made pizza. They don't look like much but boy were they full of flavor.
Common, standard, perfect - tomato #4 no photo because you have seen it about 100 times - sliced and served on a hamburger. Tomato to meat ratio should be 2:1.
Different, exotic, sublime - tomatoes #5 and #6 were used in this Greek Orzo salad. I was very excited to be able to use the basil and oregano I planted out back! I added the cucumber even though the recipe didn't call for it. I think they meant to put it in but forgot. This will be made a few more times this summer.
Whose idea was it to pick only 6 tomatoes anyway?
