  2. Simply Dressed Tomatoes Recipe

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 for 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 everyday.

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 are these simply dressed tomatoes. Use your favorite heirloom varieties not just for the beautiful color, but also 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!

  • heirloom tomatoes
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • feta cheese


  • Slice thinly in alternating colors.
  • Drizzle heavily with as good of extra virgin olive oil as you can afford. Well, don’t break the bank, but the better the oil, the better the natural flavor (it really does make a difference)!
  • Sprinkle with flaky salt, like Maldon.
  • Add some feta cheese, if you so choose.
