I love celebrating the arrival of a new ingredient.  And now is the time the Heirloom tomatoes are showing up around farmers markets in the Bay Area. Here is a simple preparation that allows the full flavor of the tomatoes to shine through. For the fried green zebra tomatoes, I sprinkled salt and cornmeal over one side of the tomato, and quickly cooked it under the broiler.
