Heirloom tomato tart for #SundaySupper

April is National Tomato month in Florida, and this bright red veggie…I mean fruit, is now ripe for the pickin’! I enjoy eating fruits and veggies that are in season because they are tastier, their nutritional value is higher and they’re usually more affordable when in season.

I used to put my tomatoes in the refrigerator, but I recently learned that keeping them in a pretty bowl on the counter is better. The cold temperature of the refrigerator can kill the flavor of tomatoes.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for an easy and colorful tart made with delicious heirloom tomatoes, creamy ricotta and tangy blue cheese. This tart is the perfect side dish to add to any #SundaySupper spread during Spring, and it looks especially pretty on the table when dining al fresco with family and friends.

What I enjoy most about this tomato tart is that you can sub out the blue cheese for any of your favorite cheeses. Mozzarella or cheddar would pair nicely with ricotta.

  12. Love that you’ve chosen ricotta cheese to accompany the gorgeous heirlooms. Glad you mentioned the fact that tomatoes are more flavorful when kept outside of the fridge =)

  13. I made a pie with totally different cheeses. Fun to see them both and how different they are. Love the tomato colors!

  14. this will be awesome with summer tomatoes!

  15. Hi Candace, this would be a great addition to the tomato theme over at Food on Friday (which is on right now). Each month there are 3 different themes plus a Potluck – so you should always be able to share something. If you would like to join in the fun on a regular basis please schedule a reminder for the second Friday of each month (NZ time). Cheers from Carole’s Chatter
