Until our vacation this year, I couldn’t be convinced that there was any other tomato that compared to an East Tennessee Grainger County Tomato.

Then, I feasted on Caprese salads all across Italy and found that the tomatoes in that region are equally delicious, especially when drizzled with olive oil.

I couldn’t bring home tomatoes as souvenirs, but I did manage to make it back with some olive oil from Sicily, which I purchased in the beautiful seaside village of Taormina.

I was drawn into the shops with regional foods—pastas, spices, olive oils—and wished I could bring home a full shopping cart to enjoy after our trip!

I settled on purchasing Sicilian olive oil which is made from olive trees grown in the rich volcanic soil of the region. Very fragrant and appetizing, Italians serve it drizzled on Caprese salads, bread, pasta, and fish.

Keeping it simple, I used some of my olive oil to make a Greek Heirloom Tomato Salad from some beautiful cherry tomatoes I found at Costco. Using capers and Feta cheese lends a bit of Greek flavor to this light and colorful salad.
