I know everyone is in a hurry to welcome fall. Everywhere you look it's sweaters and football and pumpkin. Poor summer, who still has a week left in its reign, has been forgotten. But I would urge you to give summer one last hurrah with this amazing salad. Run to the market while good heirloom tomatoes are still available and make this as soon as possible. It's one of the most delicious things to ever come out of my kitchen. And it takes just a few minutes to throw together.
