Tomato and Feta Sandwich

It’s starting to feel like Fall here in New York. We’ve been able to turn off the A/C, open the windows and finally enjoy some fresh air. It’s my favorite time of year for produce and I’m trying to eat all the summer veggies I can before they’re no longer around.

I used to think I didn’t like tomatoes. Until I had an heirloom tomato in the summer and I realized what seasonal eating was all about. Tomatoes taste better in the late summer and early fall because that’s when they’re supposed to be at their ripest. A tomato in the middle of the winter has been grown somewhere far away and loses all it’s flavor in transit.

My favorite way to eat tomatoes is simply; usually with a lot of olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. A bit of feta and basil on top of a baguette doesn’t hurt either.
