Creamy, nutty heirloom tomato tart to celebrate the summer.
I love summer and it’s gorgeous bright colored produce, like these heirloom tomatoes!
I’ve always liked tomatoes but heirlooms are my favorites.
They are visually stunning, come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
Tomatoes are usually just available during the summer which makes them even more special.
If you are not able to find heirloom tomatoes, you can use any other tomato variety for this recipe.
Tomatoes are low in calories and contain vitamin C and several vitamin B varieties, fiber, and more.
The nutrients may help fight cancers, improve heart health and protect against skin damage.
This crust is gluten free and I am using walnuts instead of flour.
Walnuts are high in omega 3 which is great for your brain, can improve eye health and much more!
But if you don’t like walnuts, you can use other nuts like cashews or almonds.
For a spec of green, I like adding fresh herbs like basil and chives.
Dill is also a great addition.

Chose The Tomatoes
As mentioned, I love using heirloom tomatoes for this tart, however, if you cannot find them, using any tomato that looks good to you!
I recommend getting tomatoes that are vibrant in color, firm to the touch and larger in size.
To make this tart visually stunning, try going for different colors of tomatoes, if you can find them.
