The Simplicity of Summer

My idea of a perfect summer breakfast: two pieces of whole wheat toast topped with 1/4 of a mashed ripe avocado and a thick slice of organic heirloom tomato each with a little basil, salt, chili flakes and good olive oil. The heirloom tomatoes right now are simply wonderful: soft and tender without being mushy or mealy, and very sweet and juicy with very low acid. These tomatoes are fresh from the market and have never been the fridge. The creamy richness of the avocado mixed with the ripe juicy sweet tomato with the freshness of the basil on top of warm nutty and crispy toast is just heavenly.

Alternative: for an even simpler version, use light mayonnaise instead of avocados. I was out of avocados so I just had the mayo version for lunch, so wonderful! I want to eat it for dinner as well! It's really all about the tomato. I want to go out and buy more heirlooms now.
