End of Summer Salad

I haven’t been writing much about what I’ve been eating lately because I’ve mostly been eating tomatoes – lots and lots of tomatoes! Now, don’t get me wrong – I love that – but it doesn’t always make for interesting reading.
 
I love caprese salad of course, but another version of cheese and tomatoes that I love is to use fresh ricotta and lots of pepper and some salt.  Ricotta doesn’t have a ton of flavor on it’s own but add a nice element and contrasting texture.  Sometimes I eat it just as pictured above but I also often add a couple of splashes of balsamic for a nice tang against the sweet tomatoes.  And of course you can use any type of tomato.  For this salad I’ve used bright and cheery Yellow Brandywine tomatoes.  They are huge!  And this bowl of slices is not even one-half of a tomato!
