Quick Bites: Tomatoes

 

(page 2 of 2)

For a tasty and fancy treat, head to Chaiwalla in Salisbury (860/435-9758) for a slice of tomato pie with thick layers of ripe tomato slices, melted sharp cheddar cheese, basil and a warm, buttery crust. Want to enjoy those endless summer nights on your own porch? Bring home some gazpacho for dinner from Balducci’s Food Lover’s Market in Greenwich (203/637-7600) or Westport (203/254-5200) and your loved ones will thank you. This refreshing high-summer classic is made with chunks of tomato, cucumber, onion and bell pepper, cilantro, parsley and green onion­­—it’s an excellent way to beat the heat. No matter how you say it, slice it or dice it, the tomato is a highlight of Connect­icut’s summertime cuisine.
