The best part of summer is when our tomatoes plants start producing. I plant several varieties because it's fun and I love the different colors. On the plate I have Lemon BoyMortgage Lifter and Cherokee Purple. This is a simple, simple salad that has a beautiful presentation. I like to use a white vinegar for drizzling instead of balsamic which affects the color of the tomatoes. Fresh homegrown tomatoes and fried okra. I can't find anything wrong with that.
