Les tomates

My first ripe red zebra.

I can't remember which one this is - but it's one of Frank's.

Pale yellow are lemon drop cherries, dark yellow are Frank's cherries, red pear cherries and the red zebra. These almost all went - halved - into a post-Fire Island salad of thin strips of green mango, blanched but crunchy green beans, cilantro, mint and Thai basil from the terrace, and an eye-widening dressing of lime juice, fish sauce, fresh raw ginger, garlic, jalapeno, sugar and black pepper.

Vincent, usually a salad-averse person, scraped his bowl clean.
