Summer on a Plate, 2012 edition*
Green zebra-striped tomato, you were irresistible and destined to be in my mouth when I saw you sitting on a table at the farmers’ market.
Sliced and perched on top of a little bit of mayo (but a bit of butter would be just as good) and basil on a thick slice of toasted sourdough bread, you were joined by an almost-purple and exceptionally ripe fellow tomato and one of my best efforts at a hard-boiled egg to date, before I sprinkled you all with corse salt and black pepper.
The crunch, the sweet, the tang, the juiciness. This was a close-your-eyes-while-eating worthy lunch.
Perfect to eat in a sunny apartment while watching a bit of Julie & Julia.
