« Tiropitakia | Main | Playing around with vegetables, part II: Provencal style stuffed zucchini »

June 16, 2004



Mmmm. Yellow tomatoes - yummy yummy yum yum yum. I grew some once that were called "Lemon Boys" and while they didn't taste like lemon, they were possibly the most delicious tomatoes I'd ever had.
I too find myself turning towards tomatoes, Alberto -- great minds, hmm? Beautiful salad, by the way.


The Lemon Boys sound really appetising. I would have loved to know what variety the ones I had were, just for curiosity, but I have a bit of a fruit-veg variety fetish :-). BTW this might interest you: a new kind of black tomato seems to be the rage in the UK


Happy you liked the salad.


isn't it funny how you sometimes immediately discard some shops when on the lookout for something? this week i had a similar experience with Tesco's - I had been looking for mooli/daikon/white radish at every greengrocer, market, waitrose for a few months now, ended up bringing them from Austria. yesterday i went shopping at said supermarket with a friend: their selection is terrible, not too happy with the quality eiter, the display horrific, but guess what I found - mooli!


tomatoes in french are also called pomme d'amour or apples of love. I just planted tomato plants and the yellow pear tomato is one of my favourite. Your tomato salad looks a lot like the one I recently posted on my site except I've got green olives (the jumbo greek green olives are my favourite salty contrast to a sweet ripe tomato). Yay for the simplicity of summer vegetables or shall we say fruit but that's a whole different tangent.
