Heirloom tomatoes are sooo in right now—are you as in love as me?  For one thing, they are seriously tasty!  And if that’s not enough, many of them are beautiful, with lots of unique colors and patterns.  Alas, others are downright ugly, covered with scars and bulges.  That will never do for a sandwich slicer. 

Ugly Tomatoes

Ugly (but tasty) tomatoes!

Last week’s CSA box was loaded with heirlooms.  I munched a couple and froze some of the perfect round ones for winter pasta sauce.  But, what do you do with an ugly tomato?

Tomatoes and Feta and Basil, oh my!

Finally, I remembered an old recipe for Tomato Feta Basil Salad, that I hadn’t had in years.  With a simple vinaigrette and just four other ingredients, it would be perfect.  Similar to a deconstructed caprese salad using feta instead of fresh mozzarella, I knew it would be a hit.

A fall bounty!

My husband and one of our daughters rode in a 100-mile bike ride this weekend.  It was a fun but busy time, so an easy salad fit in perfectly!

And, of course, every tomato deserves a little love.
