  1. LATIN AMERICAN EMPANADAS (including Mexico, Caribbean, Meso America and South America) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empanada

          Wow, there hasn't been an Italian DOTM! With the diversity of pizza crusts available in the Bay Area, this would be a fun comparison.

        2. GREEK TOMATO SALAD AND VARIATIONS

          Quality and balance of ingredients can elevate a summer tomato salad into something greater than the some of its parts. A salad that showcases fresh ripe tomatoes captures the essence of summer. There are lots of variations on this theme ranging from the classic Greek salad to tomato salads with goat cheese or burrata.

          The nice thing about choosing this as the DOTM is that people can discuss salads they sample at restaurants as well as ones they make themselves using fresh Northern California tomatoes.

            Despite our wealth of seasonal produce, the closest DOTM has come to showcasing seasonal produce is "cucumber pickles" and "pie"! This pick has the advantage of providing a fresher DOTM, and being something people will no doubt be eating during August.

            Is the unifying element of this dish fresh tomatoes and a soft type of cheese, or is the cheese optional?

            1. re: hyperbowler

              I would say any salad where fresh tomatoes are the star. We could even include things like Panzanella.

              Could be a good compliment to an older DOTM for corned beef: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/892399
