THE VILULA TEA GARDEN was a little tea room in my memories...ladies wearing white gloves and pretty hats; soft and mended old linens on the tables; and heirloom roses in crystal vases....lovely.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the tomatoes in a colander in the sink in 1 layer. Sprinkle with salt and allow to drain for 10 minutes.

To serve, cut into slices and serve warm.

I have really enjoyed all the delicious tomatoes from my three plants this summer...for those of you who are tired of BLTs (except who could ever get tired of BLTs?) try this recipe! It is not diet-friendly, though, if you are trying to lose could use low-fat or non-fat mayo, but you might as well go ahead and just enjoy it like it is! Tomato season comes once a year where I live!


  1. Oh sounds yummy!!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. 'Twas very yummy. I really shook out the tomatoes in the colander to get all the wetness out. DH and I both loved it and I am *not* a cook in any way. But this made me look like a shining food network star. OK, that's an exaggeration, but in my home it was miraculous I cooked anything. :-)

  3. thanks for posting, Tango and Carrie! Glad you liked DH loved it as well!
