Pumpernickel with Ripe Tomato

and Chives





Fresh naturally ripe tomatoes are one of the great summer vegetables affording to be eaten raw on first sight. However, having some fresh chives and some hearty bread with it makes a great lunch. Even though each Pumpernickel slice has 2% fat I like to use all my available fat-token of the day for this treat.


It is my greatest pleasure during the summer to enjoy the first ripe field-harvested local tomatoes. Nothing beats the natural richness of the tomato flavor being sour and fruity with a touch of sweetness. Served on heavy whole-grain sourdough bread with plenty of freshly chopped chives, well, that provides an unsurpassed enjoyment.
