This time of year I'll eat corn just about every day until it's gone. I'm crazy for fresh corn. A summer treat that never gets tired. Here. Look at this.

I call these "tomato towers" because I stack slices of tomato and onion with some herbs between each layer.
Everything on the plate, except for the vinegar, is fresh from the field. Perfect with a glass of Chianti or Merlot.
Sometimes I use red onion, sometimes yellow. Sometimes I have cheese with it. Grated fresh Parmesan or maybe crumbled goat cheese. With a little splash of vinegar. Try it with a beefsteak tomato. Try it with an heirloom tomato.
Sometimes I leave the stack intact and scatter some sliced cherry tomatoes around the plate. Other times I make a criss cross cut with a sharp knife and just let it all collapse.
One can enjoy this who knows how many different ways.
Saturday. Sunny. Hot. Dry. Breezy. The most perfect summer day.
