I am all about creating recipes that are seasonal, with ingredients that are showcased and available during that season. Summer is the season for tomatoes and especially Heirloom Tomatoes. Yesterday I came across these beautiful Mini Heirloom Tomatoes and decided to slow roast them, and make them into a tart topped with a bright fresh salad.
If you can't find Mini Heirlooms, just thin slice (1/4") regular Heirloom Tomatoes (I'd use about 3 for this recipe) and roast them the same way. When roasting Tomatoes you're looking for them to just start to wilt and prune up a bit, and brown very slightly. Roasting tomatoes brings out this incredible flavor that will turn non-tomato lovers into believers!
You can also top this tart with some fresh Mozzarella, Burrata or Ricotta Cheese to give it a little more of an Italian pizzazz.
