Heirloom Tomatoes

Heirloom Tomatoes

Tomatoes are at their best this time if year, and we have a wonderful selection of heirloom tomatoes in our produce aisle. Heirloom tomatoes provide delicious aromas and flavor variety—from sweet to acidic. And, the colors and shapes make your dishes that much more appetizing.

People have been saving the seeds of these open-pollinated varietals and passing them down for generations. And, we are so fortunate to be able to walk into the store and pick them out!

Their flavor shines in these summer dishes:

Roman Summer Salad
Don’t be afraid of the anchovies! They add a dimension to the flavor of the dish, but not the “fishy” flavor.

Jumbo Pico Salad
The great thing about this Jumbo Pico Salad is the big chunks of veggies. It has all the flavor of pico de gallo with something you can sink your teeth into.

Tomato, Peach, and Avocado Bruschetta
The combined flavors are amazing.

Backyard Tomato Salad
The flavor in this tomato salad is accentuated by salting the tomatoes, so don’t be shy of this step. This is a fantastic summer tomato salad!

Fresh Tomato Bruschetta
I use this as my base recipe, and improvise.

Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Platter Salad
This is the perfect blend of all things summer: corn, tomatoes, and avocado. Plus, it has cumin in it and in my world everything is better with cumin.

Heirloom Tomato Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing
Nothing looks prettier on a plate than some thickly sliced heirloom tomatoes with a drizzle of tangy blue cheese dressing. Making your own dressing is pretty easy. Though, I have to say the freshly made dressing we have in our cheese department is even easier.

Tomato Chile Melon Salad
This recipe has so much appeal! It’s basically an appetizer platter in a bowl.
