One of Our Favorite Things About Summer: Tomatoes
As we savor the last months of the summer season, our chefs are adding heirloom tomatoes to their menus. Other than being more colorful and oddly shaped than your everyday tomato, heirloom tomatoes really are special and are at their peak in the late summer.
With such a short season, our best advice is to try ’em while they’re delicious so we rounded up a few of our favorite dishes from the perfect salads and summer pastas.
