Lawson's Heirloom Tomato Pie

Nothing screams Spring to me than a trip to the Farmers Market either in the Hamptons on Saturday morning or if I happen to be in the city of course Union Square on Wednesdays is awesome! When I am down south, Charleston SC has one of the best farmers markets in the country!

Find the Heirloom tomatoes and as many crazy colors as possible. Here’s my southern fabulous recipe for you. Enjoy.

1 9 inch pastry shell (unbaked)
3 large colorful heirloom tomatoes thinly sliced
1 large Vidalia onion thinly sliced (it MUST be Vidalia) They’re the sweetest!
cracked pepper
sea salt
1 cup fresh whole basil leaves1 cup Dukes Mayonnaise. (Duke’s is a southern brand. . but is AMAZING if you can get it)
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2  cup grated asiago
1/2 cup Gruyere

Set oven to 375 and bake pie shell off for approx 12 minutes and let cool

Combine the mayo and the cheese

Place tomatoes on a paper towel and sprinkle with some sea salt to dehydrate a bit.

Place layer of tomatoes, then onions on top of that and then the layer of mayo and cheese spread and repeat until fill. Make sure to dot eat layer with fresh basil leaves. On the final layer chop of the basil and sprinkle on top.

Bake at 350 for approx 35 minutes or until golden brown.
