Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to make the most delicious Cold Tomato Salad that ever graced a summer table. Put a fresh spin on a classic or create an entirely new salad that will make our judges beg for more, and then enter that dish in the 2017 Tomato Art Fest recipe contest!
Here is how it works: Take an ordinary tomato, and dress, adorn and decorate it as if it were an entrant in a beauty contest, or headed to a costume party. (It helps to think of your tomato as a small, round person who is just ripe to get dressed up and go out on the town!) Winners receive praise and a bunch of swell prizes!
