It’s time for tomatoes

As one vendor put it, it’s Tomatopalooza!  Tomatoes are taking over the Market – standard hybrids – Big Boy and Early Girl, multi-colored heirlooms in a variety of shapes and sizes – Cherokee Purple,Brandywine or Mr. Stripey, and cherry tomatoes too.  They are everywhere!  So this week, I think I will post some tomato recipes to enjoy.  I’ll start with a basic, easy fresh salsa.  It’s simple to make and should keep for a few days in the fridge.  Break away from the chips and try it on grilled chicken or a burger.
