4-5 heirloom tomatoes, ripe and fragrant
1/2 medium red onion
1 tbsp sour cream (or Greek-style yogurt)
Salt and pepper to taste


Slice your tomato into thick wedges and your onion into slivers. Add sour cream, and mix well to combine. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.

[You will have, after you’re done, this creamy juice left over with some onions swimming in it. I implore you not to throw that out. You know that rustic bread I was referring to? Well, save a piece and dip your bread in the juices. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.]
