I’ve often struggled to grow tomatoes in Tucson. Over the years, ive had the best results growing little ones, grape tomatoes and yellow pear tomatoes. We have an heirloom, yellow pear tomato plant that survived the winter, and now with its mature root structure it’s trying to take over the world. We’ve gotten a lot of tomatoes this year, but it does involve diving into the plant to find them. It’s worth to effort to make this tomato cucumber salad!
This is my variation of the salad my sister-in-law makes. I’ve always loved having this when we visited PA in the summer.Print
