Tasty and Easy Tomato Tart

Happy Sunday! 🙂 I always know that the summer season is moving along when I start seeing fresh tomatoes popping up! There is something about a fresh summer tomato that can never compare to the ones found in supermarkets (in my opinion, those are not tomatoes haha!). I was thrilled to find two types of organic tomatoes in my Taproot Farm CSA share this week – red tomatoes and cherry sungold tomatoes! YUM! I love the color variety in these tomatoes and they make for a really beautiful tart – perfect to serve with dinner or as an appetizer. I make this tart using a premade pie crust, which makes everything come together super quickly. The flavors of the fresh tomatoes and cheeses with a sprinkle of basil from our garden are a delicious blend of everything summer! I hope you enjoy this tart as much as we have – happy baking! 🙂
