Croatian Summer Heirloom Tomato Tart

DSC_1019

Summertime in Croatia offers long sun-soaked days, balmy temperatures, and a bounty of fresh colorful produce. Tomatoes in particular shine, boasting sweet and mellow flavors, bright colors, and ample health benefits. Lycopene, the tomato’s health claim to fame, helps protect against cancer and cell decay, protects the functions of the heart, and gives the skin a healthy glow. Cooking tomatoes with olive oil, as in this tart, actually bolsters the lycopene and aids in its absorption. Enjoy this summery tomato tart all summer long, either as a simple appetizer on its own, or alongside a green salad and fresh fish as a balanced, deliciously healthy meal.
