Whole 30 & Paleo Tomato Salad

25 Sep

My neighbors brought over two huge, ripe heirloom tomatoes from their garden the other day.  Since we were headed to visit with friends and have an evening dinner on the grill, I decided to make a salad out of these tomatoes to enjoy as a side dish.  This is a simple way to highlight the wonderful flavor of garden fresh tomatoes!  Enjoy it while the season is still upon us!
