      TOMATOES for caprese
      TOMATOES for bruschetta
      TOMATOES in my salad
      Peaches, cherries & strawberries
      TOMATOES with a salt shaker and napkin!
      And TOMATOES...

        TOMATOES and nothing! Sometimes I'll just bite into one while picking a bowlful--eat it naked (the tomato, not me), not even washed. Still warm from the sun. Tomato juice drippng off my chin. Summer.

    2. Mostly just the tomatoes, but strawberries too. Yum!

      1. Royal Anne cherries, along with Bing cherries. Strawberries (fresh, local, uber-sweet strawberries). Definitely sweet corn on the cob...and off the cob! Real, honest, non-hot-house tomatoes.

        Grilled meats of all kinds.

            Tomatoes (slathered with mayo and white bread!)
            Corn on the cob
            Cantaloupe (with Proscuitto, of course)
            Last but not least, Margarita's on the rocks! (I know, that's a year round drink - couldn't resist)

              Margaritas might be available year-round, but they sure taste better while sitting out on the beach vs. inside to ward of the cold!

            2. re: Crockett67

              Yes, bowlfuls and bowlfuls of Bing and Rainier cherries from Yakima valley. The epitome of summer for me!

          2. Gazpacho! And the tomatoes of all kinds that come out of the garden

            1. Small fresh yellow crook necked squash. Don't cut them up. Steam them whole then serve with salt and butter. Or olive oil
