Summer is for tomatoes

These heirloom "ugly" tomatoes are absolutely irresistable; each variety has it's own flavor character, and they add all the colors of the summer to the plate.
During the last hour of the farmers market they go on sale for $2/pound. I think I got too many again...

Mixed with arugula, chevril, bittercress, and basil, seasoned with salt, pepper, and good olive oil, and topped with roasted pine nuts, they almost make a complete dinner on a hot evening.

No, I didn't go vegetarian, I'm still holding. I did grill a small flat iron steak almost as an afterthought. It was delicious too, but not nearly as good looking as the salad.
