Picnic Tomatoes with Gluten Free Brie Toast

I came across a southern dish mentioned in our favorite magazine all about North Carolina called Our State, utilizing peak-of-the-season 'maters that sounded right up our alley. So here is my northern, chef-inspired version of a southern side that really celebrates summer and vine-ripened tomatoes at their finest. A perfect compliment to sweet corn and any grilled item you have a hankering for or just as satisfying on their own with a slice of your favorite Éban's Bread toasted up and topped with some melty brie cheese!  Yum!         -Adrienne

Picnic Tomatoes with GF Brie Toast makes 4 servings


  • 2-3 ripe Heirloom Tomatoes (like Cherokee Purple, Yellow Brandywine, Hillbilly, etc), sliced about 1/2" thick
  • 3-4 Tbsp Mayonnaise (preferrably Duke's) or more or less as needed
  • 2-3 Tbsp chopped, fresh mixed Herbs (Basil, Tarragon, Oregano, Chives, Nasturtium Petals, Borage Flowers for example)
  • 1 small Vidalia Sweet Onion, peeled and sliced into 1/4" rings (optional)
