Summer means big, juicy, colorful heirloom tomatoes. Their flavor more than justifies their more expensive price tag. The slices of heirloom tomato pair perfectly with creamy burrata, slices of avocado, grilled bread, and watercress for a fresh summer appetizer. Tartines are like fancy toast or open faced sandwiches – these tomato tartine are sure to be a hit. Of course if you’re like me and you hate dealing with summer heat you could always make it into a quick and easy dinner!
The term tartine means toast in French. It’s typically a slice of bread with a sweet or savory topping similar to an open-faces sandwich. Tartines are larger than crostini – crostini are typically made with slices of baguette rather than halved or whole pieces of toast. The terms are used fairly interchangeably these days.
