Home grown and sun ripened

We've had a ripper year for tomatoes.
Last year was a disaster and I really didn't have high hopes for the crop this year.
So in spite of my pessimism, the tomatoes did their thing and the crop is abundant.

We've got a couple of varieties planted and there's nothing nicer than freshly picked tomatoes, still warm from the sun, chopped up, mixed together with red wine vinegar and olive oil, a handful of mint (for something different) and some pomegranate seeds. Spoon the mixture over char grilled sour dough, rubbed with garlic ...
We served this as an entree a couple of weeks ago. Summer on a plate.
