Maui-Grown Heirloom Tomatoes

Three varieties of organic, Maui-grown heirloom tomatoes.
With the weather in San Francisco being so cold and windy recently, I've been thinking back to the vacation I took to Maui this past December. I love the warm, sunny weather there, but the other thing I love about the island is all of the organic, local produce that you can get year-round! Pictured in this post is just one example: Organic, Maui-grown heirloom tomatoes that we bought at Whole Foods in Kahului and prepared for lunch the same day. I picked these three tomatoes for their different outer colors of yellow, red and dark green, but we had no idea the amazing kaleidoscope we would discover when we cut them open! They would have tasted great plain, but we opted to get a bit fancy. Topped with some mozzarella di bufala and local basil, and drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Alaea salt and cracked pepper, it was the perfect lunch to compliment the Mediterranean-like weather.

Lunch for two: Caprese Salad.
