End-of-the-Season Tomato Basil Salad Recipe

Season Tomato Basil Salad

I love harvesting the last ripe tomatoes of the season. Something about them makes me savor each and every bite rather than taking their summer flavor for granted. This salad was my last effort to enjoy our garden tomatoes – and I could have eaten the whole bowl!

You can serve immediately, or hold the bacon and store it in the fridge overnight to meld the flavors and then add the bacon right before serving. Either way – enjoy!
