My favorite vegetable is a juicy and flavorful tomato. Garden ripe tomatoes are available for only a few months in the summertime. I will never tire of this vegetable. And so I am delighted to see that our neighborhood grocery store now stocks “tomatoes on the vine.” They are a close substitute. Expensive, but worth it. A great way to serve these tomatoes is a topping for bruschetta. Tomatoes, French bread, cheese and olive oil–a healthy combination. Yum!
