Delicious red ripe tomatoes is what summer is all about to me. Scotts favorite is German Johnson and could probably be mine too. I like a variety of tomatoes and have grown heirlooms of all colors. Tomatoes sliced and put on a long appetizer tray, topped with salt, pepper, fresh basil and drizzled with balsamic vinegar makes a beautiful and scrumptious presentation.
One of the most often question I get asked in our show room is, “What is this used for?” So each year I go through my showroom and determine the many uses of the pottery items I make. Sometimes I get the help of my sister who loves to cook and my mom who actually doesn’t like to cook anymore but has a grand imagination. We pick a tray, platter, or baking bowl and discuss what would compliment the pottery and try to choose something simple to make.
I’ve selected this wonderful appetizer tray that is 14” long and is about 7” across. Food presentation is part of what makes cooking fun. Having that perfect tray, bowl or platter to present your masterpiece is always important to a proud cook. This lovely tray is the perfect size for a small group, and can be reloaded with more delicious appetizers. I usually pair this tray with the recipe card Brochette with Tomato, Basil & Mozzarella Cheese One of my favorite appetizers, especially when everything is fresh from the garden.
I hope you enjoy the wonderful dish!
