This is a must for me to try. Tomato is a favorite in our family.

Such beautiful styling and photography! It totally caught my eye on tastespotting. It also sounds like a refreshing salad for the end of the summer!

I also adore the bowl! I took a pottery class in college once and it's much harder than I thought, have a nice week!
