Are  you getting sick of being inside? Ready for summer? It’s barely Spring, but I’m already making my Summer Cherry Tomato Tart. 

I can’t resist this tasty tart with it’s buttery crust, cherry tomatoes and goat cheese topping. I tell myself it must be healthy because of all those tomatoes and herbs, right?

The tomatoes are sprinkled with olive oil and fresh oregano and herbs, giving it a fresh summer taste.

I added fresh crumbles goat cheese over the tomatoes which melts in the oven making a creamy topping. The buttery crust is firm and flakey, it melts in your mouth. It’s a good crust to use with fruits or other vegetable tarts.

I made the tart in a 14 x4 inch pan with a removable bottom. It’s the perfect size to cut a nice size chunk of Summer Cherry Tomato Tart for each serving and fits beautifully on my Tuscana Melamine tray. Have you used my trays yet? They look like they were just painted on Italian pottery but they are Melamine! I use my Melamine tray every time I serve cupcakes, cheese and crackers, tarts and my famous Almond Cake. The tray is dishwasher safe, you can cut on it and you’ll never have to worry if it accidently drops on the floor. This tray won’t break! There are many patterns to chose from at
