Heirloom Tomato Simple Side

2014-09-07 10.59.31

Heirloom tomatoes are about to be finished for the season, but if you can get your hands on one I would highly recommend it.  A good tomato can stand alone on my plate, but sometimes it is nice to dress it up a little.  For a simple side we have been eating this summer I slice the tomato into big slices and dress it up a little.  It doesn’t get much easier or healthier.

I love the way basil matches with tomatoes, but don’t feel like you have to stop there.  I love chives when serving with a savory breakfast as pictured above or parsley when accompanying a sandwich.

Ingredients:

-1 heirloom tomato sliced thick
-1 Tbsp of good quality olive oil
-dash of Kosher salt
-1 Tbsp of fresh herbs roughly chopped or torn

Directions:

Arrange tomato slices on a plate and drizzle with olive oil.  Next sprinkle with herbs and kosher salt…done!
