Slice ’em and salt ’em.
That’s really all a seasonally delicious tomato needs. Though if you really want to gussy it up, you could add a bit of pepper, a splash of olive oil, maybe a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar. Just enough of each to highlight the sweetly acidic flavour of the juicy tomato flesh.
Still, summer tends to bring an abundance of tomatoes, and after a while we find ourselves hankering for something with a little more oomph. And a salad just isn’t cutting it.
So we couldn’t help but dream up a few other ways to play to a tomato’s strengths. We started by turning them into a spicy-sweet jam that is a perfect accompaniment to cheeses and cured meats. Or try it in place of ketchup on a burger (or over any grilled meat, for that matter). It’s also amazing added to a grilled cheese.
