Your Best Tomato Salad

Bat Guano | Jun 5, 200812:46 PM     48

At the moment I have an embarrassment of riches in the tomato line: homegrown Cherokee Purples, Early Girls, some yellow Beefsteak that I've forgotten the name of, and Sweet 100s cherry tomatoes (don't hate me - believe me, I've worked very hard and waited a long, long time for the stars to align like this).

What's the best way to totally overindulge in sweet tomato bliss, so that I can sample all these lovely tomatoes in one dish, that will showcase them to their utmost? My usual solution is a big tomato sandwich (one slice, consisting of about half of the largest tomato I can find, between two slices of good bread, with mayo and fresh-ground pepper, and a sprinkle of basil chiffonade) but that only features one kind of tomato at a time - I want total tomato overload!
