This summer, I've enjoyed a new kind of tomato (at least it was new to me) called a Kumato. It's a small tomato whose skin looks brown. I've purchased them at my local grocery store and at Trader Joe's. The flavor is tasty and it's fun to use something a little out of the ordinary.
I'm a bit tired of caprese salads (yes, they are yummy), so when company was coming, I made a different version with the Kumatoes. First, I drizzled some balsamic glaze on a plate. You can buy it in a bottle -- I've pictured mine here. It's thick enough to hold a pattern, which makes it a fun way to add flavor and decorate the plate at the same time.
Next, I laid three slices of the tomatoes on the plate, then garnished them with crumbled gorgonzola, diced red onion, crumbled pecans, and some chopped fresh avocado. I topped it all off with one more small squiggle of the balsamic glaze.
Voila! It was beautiful to serve and delicious to eat! (And pretty darn easy, too -- although it has the look of having taken a lot more trouble). Enjoy!
