I am a huge fan of tomatoes. Even as a child, all I needed was a big ripe tomato with a little salt sprinkled on top, a slice of buttered bread and maybe an egg. Dinner! Sounds a little sparse, I know, but I have only recently switched to serving hot meals in the evening instead of for lunch. Bread, cold-cuts and cheese with pickles, quick pickled beets and salads. Typical German dinner.
I love tomato salad. Simple. With oil and vinegar, salt and pepper and some chives. Or a little more fancy with a Picada of almonds, capers and rustic bread. Serve with your Sunday roast (without the Picada) or for lunch, dinner, Brotzeit, or whenever with the Picada. I grow a lot of tomatoes and now is the time to serve them up as one last celebration of summer.
