I grew "Golden Boy" tomatoes in my garden this year. If you are not familiar with that variety, they are wonderfully sweet and are an amazing shade of orangey-yellow! I threw this dish together one night all from bits and pieces I had leftover in the fridge. I toasted the bread plain, but feel free to grill ot toast it with a little olive oil and garlic. Also, shredded fresh basil leaves would be a nice addition as well.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 yellow tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 13 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 13 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 -2 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 14 cup gorgonzola, crumbled
  • 12 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 6 slices thick Italian bread, toasted
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Toss the tomatoes, onion, red pepper, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Allow the tomatoes to release their juices.
  3. Place the balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  4. Allow vinegar to gently reduce until it is the consistency of syrup.
  5. Toss the crumbled Gorgonzola in the the tomato mixture.
  6. Top slices of toasted bread with the tomatoes and drizzle the balsamic syrup over the top.

Nice simple recipe. I like a crispy toast so I start with a very hard French bread slice it fairly thin and place it under the broiler until quite well toasted. As soon as it cools a little, take a raw clove of garlic and rub across top of the toasted bread before covering with the rest of the goodness.
