Tomato Carpaccio

When I'm feeling lazy or it's just to hot to cook  I always go with my mom's "simple tomato carpaccio" its so easy and simple and the flavors truly shine. Here's the recipe:

Mom's Tomato Carpaccio

  1. Thinly sliced your heirloom tomato with a tomato knife or serrated knife.
  2. Arrange the sliced tomatoes in concentric circles, slightly overlapping the slices.
  3. Sprinkle with crushed dried oregano. 
  4. Drizzled with lemon extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Serve at room temperature.
