Summer time means that local Jersey produce is in full swing. And that means the Jersey tomato, too. Aromatic and full of flavor and juice, this summer staple is perfect with a slice of mozzarella & some basil from the garden or just a sprinkle of salt.
In fact, I feel like it pairs well with so many things. It seems to me like it’s the BFF to (almost) everyone else in the garden: Corn, cucumber, peppers… Chopped up in salsa or bruschetta with some herbs… Small cherry tomatoes for the little hands helping around the house. And with those little hands and feet running around the house, I don’t want to think much about cooking dinner these days. So the tomato is a perfect addition to our summer dinner plates. Go ahead and pair it with some Jersey corn or Jersey peppers. And let the friendship begin!
