I recently mentioned to my mom that I found a small box of heirloom tomatoes at the grocery store. She said, "Oh, your dad loves heirloom tomatoes, and he'd be so jealous that you had some!"
So I thought I'd share what they looked like, and what I did with them.
My bounty. You might notice they're resting on a recipe for roasted tomato salsa, courtesy of allrecipes.com. SO easy. Roast the tomatoes and a couple of peppers under the broiler with some olive oil and garlic until they char. Throw into a blender with lime juice, salt, cilantro, and cumin, and blend until they reach the desired consistency. Note: Don't try and substitute lemon juice for lime--it's just not the same.
Oh, and Dad, here's the latest batch of heirlooms I picked up at the farmer's market on Saturday. Jealous?
