Heirloom tomato salad

I have an amazing food muse named Willie and he lives in Auburn, Alabama.  This weekend he came through New Orleans and dropped of a basket of some of his own home grown heirloom tomatoes at my place. They are called “chocolate” tomatoes.  Due to some stressful growing environments they were cracked in a bunch of places but as he said with his heavy accent, “you jest cut the good part off those babies from around those dry cracks and I can guar-rahntee you you won’t be disappointed.”  He wasn’t lying.

For lunch today I made a quick SUPER SIMPLE salad with these beauties.


Sliced Tomatoes

Slice Avocado

Drizzle with 10 year old balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste.

Summer lingers………….
