Author Notes: One of my favorite things about late summer in New England is tomatoes. I always buy far more than I need because they're so pretty, and this recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat them. I love this for a light summer meal with a salad, or as an appetizer, with a glass of wine. —CravingSomethingHealthy
