Spicy Summer Tomato Salad

Spicy Summer Tomato Salad

Author Notes: It was Girls Night Out at the W Hotel in Amsterdam last week (it's not so exotic since we all live there, but it's still special). We ordered what was called "Spicy Pile of Tomatoes" to share with our steaks. Terrible description, but what arrived made us all raise our eyebrows and say "mmmm...". Three of us announced plans to reproduce it at home the next day. I realize now as I write it down that it's really just a salsa in disguise, but you're still going to raise your eyebrows! Serve it with whatever is on the BBQ and enjoy the flavors of summer. Shortrib
