Tomato Tart

Enjoy summer’s bounty by selecting different varieties and colors of tomatoes—preferably heirloom—for this tart. During cooking, the tomatoes exude plenty of juice, which will trickle out when you slice into the tart. Use a vegetarian tapenade. Serve this handsome dish with a chilled gazpacho to start and frozen yogurt to conclude.
