As the tomatoes turn red on the plant with each passing day, I wonder what ways I can purely taste the tomato flavor. Aside from just popping a tomato in my mouth, how can I get the utmost taste of the fruits of my labor? Salsa is a pretty obvious choice, but at the moment I could probably make enough salsa for only 3 chips or half a taco. I came up with this idea randomly and made them after work today.
The plant is going crazy now.
These guys look great.
Tomatoes, some basil, goat cheese, and salt on a plate.
Cut the basil into small squares just larger then the tomatoes.
Cut the tomato into 3 segments. Cut some off the bottom if it needs help standing up. Put 2 of the edges flat into the salt.
A little glue. Or goat cheese.
Put the basil on and add more glue.
THAT looks good.
If I got this as an app at a nice place, I would be very happy.
So simple, so delicious.
