Suggestions for serving:Serve as is - it’s that delicious. It’s like a chunky soup because as it sits, the salt draws out the juices from the tomatoes. Either soak up those juices with some good bread or drink it. It’s good for you.Toasted Croutons:14 - 16 ounce loaf of crusty bread - I buy day old ciabatta but you can buy what you like1/4 cup olive oilPreheat oven 350. Slice bread into 1 inch cubes and place in a big bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and toss until it’s all coated. Transfer onto baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, toss, and continue to bake until golden brown. Set aside until you’re ready to assemble salad. These are good for any salad.Crusty Bread:Break off pieces of crusty bread and pile on the tomatoes. The juices get soaked up by the bread. So good.Other:Serve it on top of seafood, steak, pork chops, or chicken breasts.
