Tomatoes are one of my all time favorite foods in the world. Right now, when fresh tomatoes are at every farmer’s market, I go out of my way to buy them every few days. They taste sweet and juicy and I just can’t get enough of them.
I told you about that time my friend and I got tons of free greens from the farmer’s market. What I didn’t tell you is that I also discovered my new favorite way to eat tomatoes. One of the farmers had slices of tomatoes to sample with lime juice, oregano, and salt. Oh, My. Goodness. The tangy lime, the sweet juicy tomato, and the hint of salt and oregano just go together perfectly.
What I love most about this recipe is that it lets the tomato shine in all its tomato glory. It’s simple, delicious, ridiculously quick to throw together, and a great side dish to any summer meal. Feel free to mix up the measurements to your preference.
