Ripe, end-of-summer garden tomatoes make the best, juiciest tomato salad, perfect served with a rustic loaf of bread!

This is my husband Tommy’s favorite summer meal, especially on those nights it’s too hot to cook. We get a loaf of crusty bread, sometimes we even toast it and rub a raw garlic clove on the bread. Then eat the tomatoes and let the bread sop up all those delicious juices at the bottom (so good you’ll want to drink it!). Of course, the bread is totally optional here!

You just can’t buy juicy tomatoes like this in the supermarket, they will never compare to garden tomatoes that you wait all summer for. So if you have a ton of tomatoes in your garden, or see some at the farmer’s market, make this salad, you’ll thank me later!

The ingredients are simple, so the flavor really relies on the best tomatoes and a good quality extra virgin olive oil. Although Tommy eats this as a main dish, you can serve this as a side dish with anything you’re grilling such as chicken or fish.
