tomatoesOne of my favorite things about this time of the year is the availability of awesome tomatoes and there’s always a generous portion in my weekly CSA from Delvin Farms. To me, these things are like candy when they’re this sweet and delicious. I concocted a very simple recipe this last week and it turned out fantastic so I thought I’d share.

I found some amazing artichoke pesto sauce at the Chattanooga Farmer’s Market (more on this in a moment) and used the most amazing olive oil I’ve ever tasted from The Olive Oil Store in Green Hills – Organic Butter Infused Olive Oil and raw yogurt from my Amish friends, Eric and Brandon.

Nothing to this recipe

  • Slice the tomatoes
  • Spread with pesto sauce
  • Drizzle with liberal amounts of olive oil
  • Drizzle with yogurt
  • Salt and pepper to taste

There you have it! As it turned out, this was a meal in itself, although, this would make a great appetizer.

Chattanooga Market – A Must See!

In case you haven’t been, the Chattanooga Market was named one of the “Top 10 Public Markets in America” by Frommers and what a gem it is! It makes for the perfect day trip with the short 2 hour drive. The market features over 50 farms bringing a variety of produce, meats and cheeses to the market each week and over 130 artisans offering their unique crafts, arts, farm-fresh goods, and so many other locally made specialties.

Live music is a staple at Chattanooga Market with local and region musicians on the EPB stage for two FREE shows weekly plus food trucks galore for the hungry shoppers. Sunday Market is from 11am-4pm. Wednesday Market is 4pm-7pm.
