I love the vast array of tomato varieties that are available in the summer time.  They come in so many beautiful colours that make beautifully coloured salads!  I love to eat them on their own or alternatively making them into a quick and simple salad.
This simple heirloom tomato salad gets a blast of briny salty goodness with capers and it is served with gorgeous Parmigiano crisps.  I think it looks beautiful served in a long and flat rectangular family-style serving dish so that you can see all of the incredible colours and ingredients.
Serve this stunning salad as part of your next barbecue or eat it all on its own using a fresh baguette to mop up all of those delicious juices.
Bon appetit!
