“This tart is wonderful for brunch or a light lunch or supper. Serve with a mixed green or fruit salad. I've made this many times over the years and always get a lot of compliments when I serve it. Garden-fresh tomatoes are a big plus in this tart--to peel easily, spearing the tomato with a fork, immerse briefly in boiling water, run under cold water and the peel just slips off! Originally from a Bon Appetit Breakfasts and Brunches cookbook, published in 1983.”
