I love tomatoes. Ever since I was a young girl I have had deep love for fresh, juicy, homegrown tomatoes. My dad nicknamed me “Brookie Tomato” and the nickname still lives on. As you can imagine, I was beyond thrilled to learn that every year in Salt Lake City there is a “Tomato Days” dine around. Participating restaurants share tomato-themed menu items to support local Wasatch Community Gardens, who will receive a portion of the proceeds.
This year five local restaurants are participating in Tomato Days. Last year I absolutely loved going around town trying all of the dishes! This post features each of these local dishes that will be available from August 15- September 15th, 2017. Let me know what your favorite Tomato Days dishes are!

This year for Tomato Days the Tin Angel Cafe is preparing a dish that will make your tomato-loving-heart sing.

If you haven’t been to Laziz Kitchen for their delicious Lebanese menu items then now is definitely the time!
