Tomato Trifle

It’s harvest season, and as I jar salsa, grill triple decker sandwiches, freeze quiches, and gorge on chocolate zucchini cake, my mind is clearly only capable of thinking one thought:  “what will I do with ______ from the garden?”

This was just a simple lunch for my hubby and I while the little one had her nap, so rather than using a large trifle bowl, I layered crumbled biscuits, dobbed pesto and goat cheese, and piled lightly salted tomatoes into wine glasses.  They turned out to be a really fun and unique way to eat fresh garden tomatoes and basil.

And pretty too!
