SUMMERTIME TOMATO STACKER
Hope you’ve finally recovered from the long holiday weekend. (Just in time for the next haha.)
I recently had the chance to visit a dear friend in Birmingham, AL and by some stroke of luck we scored a reservation at the acclaimed Hot and Hot Fish Club. One of their seasonal menu staples is their Tomato Salad. Now I know it doesn’t sound all that interesting or special, but boy does it taste like summer with its thick tomato slices, fresh corn and basil! Mmmm! Today, I’m sharing a Summertime Tomato Stacker recipe inspired by Hot and Hot Fish Club’s famously delicious Tomato Salad. Keep scrolling for more!
My 12 South Farmers Market finds!
- 2 ears of Bountiful Blessings Farm corn, shucked
- 1 clove of Bountiful Blessings Farm garlic, minced
- black pepper, to taste
- 1 large Bountiful Blessings Farm tomato, 1/4" slices
- 3 Tbsp Noble Springs Dairy Garlic & Herb Chevre
- 1 slice Triple L Ranch Hickory Smoked Uncured Pork Bacon, cooked until crisp and chopped
- 2 Tbsp chiffonaded fresh Delvin Farms basil
- Set out the chevre to bring it to room temp.
- Shave the kernels off the corn cobs.
- In a small pan on medium-high heat, sauté the corn kernels and minced garlic in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil.
- Cook the corn just until tender and add black pepper to taste, then remove the pan from heat.
- Layer a tomato slice with 1 Tbsp chevre followed by a generous scoop of corn. Repeat.
- Sprinkle the layers with the bacon and basil.
This is such a pretty and simple salad option that’s a nice change from your typical salad mix! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and if you have any special recipe requests from the market, please let me know in the comments below!
