Anyway, what do we do with all those tomatoes?  I love to use tomatoes in a simple side dish - elegant and colorful on the table, and very tasty. The ingredients are heirloom tomatoes (of course), thinly sliced red onion, capers, balsalmic vinegar and olive oil.  Slice the tomatoes and layer the tomato slices and onion in a 2-3 inch casserole dish. Drizzle the olive oil and vinegar over the tomatoes. Repeat the layering and drizzling a few more times, and then sprinkle capers on top. Cover and refrigerate for about two hours before serving. Enjoy!
