Showing off heirloom tomatoes?

lqf | Aug 24, 2005 05:45 PM

The heirloom tomatoes are tapering off but still wonderful. I'd like to set out a platter with a preparation that will enhance their beauty and sweetness but will let them shine and not overwhelm them. Plan to fan thick slices of red, red-purple, green zebra, golden, etc., thinking of using ricotta salata instead of bocconcini (cute but too bland), sprinkled with chiffonade of basil. Any suggestions for other adornments, additions, dressing to show off the peak tomato flavors?
