August Heirlooms.

One of my favorite summer veggies fruits is the heirloom tomato.  Not only are they gorgeous in their reds, oranges, yellows, and greens, but they also taste better than any other tomato you'll find.  A bite of a good heirloom can take me back to summers on grandma & grandpa's farm, eating lunch fresh from the garden.  So so good!

This morning, Whole Foods had an amazing selection at 8 AM, and I, lucky to get there before the crowds, took full advantage of having the pick of the litter!

I could honestly eat one plain and sliced, but one of my favorite go-to recipes is a tomato basil salad.  Perfectly light and end-of-summery :)

Get your heirlooms before the season ends and enjoy!
