The inevitable heat wave that hits with the arrival of Fall. Others around the county are cozying up to October with sweaters and misty mornings / the Central Coast welcomes Autumn with shorts, ice cream cones, and in my case, a summer salad. Here is our dinner during that HOT first week of October. My trick to this dish? Salt-marinating the tomatoes, which draws out water without adding saltiness, and leaves all of that gorgeous tomato flavor.
