Green Beans & Tomatoes

by Chef Hector Ambriz     

    Summer is the best time to eat tomatoes. I love them cooked and raw. Here is a quick and easy recipe to enjoy your freshly picked tomatoes. This is probably enough for two.  You could pair it with fish or chicken. The cool thing about this dish is that those cherry tomatoes pop open and make a delicious sauce that you can sop up with some crusty bread.

3. Add the tomatoes and season with the garlic salt and black pepper. Cook until they blister.
4. Taste it and season some more if necessary. Serve and enjoy.
