The other night, as Jason already reported, I had dinner at Craft. One of the highlights of the meal for me was the special heirloom tomato appetizer we ordered. It perfectly accentuated the range of intoxicating sweetness to be found in these delightful vegetables (fruits, whatever).
As a fairly recent victor in Battle Tomato, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, and found myself on Friday buying over a pound of heirloom tomatoes at the Greenmarket to attempt an at-home recreation of the dish. I'm happy to report that my Craft's Heirloom Tomato Salad was a huge success (coupled with fresh corn on the cob, it made for an all-Greenmarket-veggie dinner). So delightful was it that Saturday morning on my way home from a run, I stopped again at the Greenmarket to use my last few dollars to buy three more tomatoes. If you enjoy tomatoes and have access to nice ripe heirlooms, you couldn't ask for a better way to enjoy them.
