Despite disliking fresh tomatoes as a kid, I seek them out now. I’ve mentioned before that my gardening skills leave much to be desired, but I’m excited to share that a few tomatoes in this recipe were mine! Deer be damned.
I love finding road side markets, farmer’s markets or small grocery stores that carry local produce. The ones in this picture came from my back deck and a small farmer’s market in Paris Ky. My family and I needed a COVID break and took a few days off in the “country” of Paris. There was not much to do there, but we managed to have a great time.
You’ll love the savory taste and simplicity of this recipe, which is why I included it in my gout cookbook. It can be used for salads or as a marinated for fish, chicken or pork. I used a few varieties of tomatoes, but any ripe ones you have on hand are perfect.
