The unofficial start to fall has come and gone (where did summer go?!), but the garden is still producing at full force. We have had a spectacular season of rain and everything has stayed so green and flourished in near-perfect growing conditions. My tomatoes have grown so tall that they outgrew the cages I placed around them and are almost laying over! And I’m picking gorgeous fruit every day.

There are so many options for using tomatoes: canned salsa, plain juice, soups, and spaghetti sauce. But sometimes the simplest meal can be made with these amazing varieties. My favorite quick meal or side dish for company is these simply dressed tomatoes. Use your favorite heirloom varieties not just for the beautiful color, but also for the sweeter flavor.

This seems so simple and easy and it really is! But so often, we forget to enjoy the natural flavors of the season or we cover them up with too many seasonings. Enjoy the fruit as it should be before summer is completely gone!

There is nothing better in late summer than freshly picked tomatoes, straight from the vine. In this recipe, the tomatoes are drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with feta cheese, and finished with flaky sea salt. It's a fresh recipe that tastes like pure summer!
