A few years ago, when I first ate at my favorite local restaurant, Corner Table, I described the experience I had there as having a "foodgasm." The effectiveness of our garden this season in growing that amazing red fruit has led to weeks of a special subset of the foodgasm - the tomatogasm. Eating bowls of cherry tomatoes fresh off the vine, caprese salad with our fresh basil, pasta sauce, and salsas, oh my! Here's my favorite recipe, which is my variation of Rick Bayless's lazy man's salsa as seen on pbs a few weeks ago:
The Sensual Woman's Salsa:
Grill tomatoes, red onion, garlic and jalapeno peppers until they start to blacken
Puree grilled veggies in a blender of food processor
Pulse with lime juice, fresh cilantro, salt and pepper
It's even better when it sits for a day or two in the refrigerator while all the flavors blend.
