You can eat this dish as a side salad or on top of grilled fish, chicken, or beef. If you cut the tomatoes a bit smaller than I did here, it's even great on top of crusty garlicky bread as a bruschetta. I used three types of tomatoes in this dish (yellow, heirloom and roma red).

Cooking simple and creative recipes to spice up your kitchen
Introduction
My name is Ramona and I created the blog, Curry and Comfort in 2011.  As of October 2015 Curry and Comfort became Kitchen Simmer.   I love to cook and share recipes.   I hope you join me in my culinary journey of exotic foods from around the world and comforting foods from the United States. 

I will be posting step by step recipes with pictures so you can cook some of the dishes that I am either learning to cook myself or have mastered cooking. I hope you enjoy the journey with me...
