Heirloom Tomato Toast

Here we are again…. my favorite month of the year!

Hot weather, poolside drinks and fresh tomatoes!

I found these beauties at my local Farmer’s Market!  I especially loved the baby variegated specialty tomatoes… they are so colorful and exploding with flavor

 

We’ve all heard of Avocado Toast, right?  We’ve even made a version or two HERE.  Well, we are kicking that theme up a notch and using fresh, juicy tomatoes instead! 

SUMMA TIME!

 

Let’s get this party started…

First, we are going to make the flavor-packed spread for the toast.  Begin by putting 8 oz. softened cream cheese in a bowl.  I’m using 1 diced radish and 2 T. chopped chives, but feel free to use any other herb or veggie you think would be great!

 

Stir the mixture until well combined.  I also used a few dashes of my Everything But  The Bagel seasoning… love that stuff!

 

Toast your bread (I just used packaged sourdough) and allow it to cool.  Spread the cream cheese mixture liberally over the toast.  

 

Next, cut your tomatoes.  Again, I have a slightly crazy love for tomatoes, so I sliced mine thick, but feel free to keep them thinner…. whatever is to your liking

 

Top the cream cheese mixture with the tomato and fill in with the smaller tomatoes for size, shape and taste variety.  You seriously can’t go wrong

 

Drizzle a small amount of Olive Oil for added yumminess

 

And then dust with salt, pepper and a sprinkling of chives
