Heirloom tomatoes

Every Saturday this month, Matt and I have been waking up and going straight to the farmer's market near Borough Hall in Brooklyn. The reason? To pick up as many heirloom tomatoes as we can carry. 'Tis the season after all, and the mouth-watering selection—well over 10 different varieties—is impossible to resist. I pepper Matt with questions like, 'Do you think we got enough black princes? Let's get one more' or 'Are you sure we don't need another green zebra?' The selection process is made all the more fun by the vendor, who allows you to sample bites of each kind.

Let's just say Matt and I purchased enough heirloom tomatoes to eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner this week. :)

A great recipe for an heirloom tomato salad (with burrata!).
