My favorite late-summer vegetable is the heirloom tomato. It tastes sweeter than a roma or garden tomato and its difficult not to love the range of color it can bring to any dish. While my sister is a whiz at more complex dishes, I tend to stick to what I know: simple.

Here is a super easy Caprese Salad recipe, that works as a great side dish for any meal.

1 container heirloom cherry tomatoes/ 3 large heirloom tomatos varying colors

1 tbsp olive oil

Chop, dice and slice however you like and throw it all into a bowl. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic on top. Add salt and pepper, stir and voila! Instant healthy treat.
