hold onto your hats, here’s a savory…
and it’s so easy. if you need a quick, delicious, flavorful and fresh addition to a brunch (or appetizer) table, look no further. and really, how can you go wrong with boursin cheese and fresh tomatoes? i used some juicy, ripe romas for this tart, but oh, how lovely it would be with a colorful variety of heirloom tomatoes…
try it… it’s virtually fool-proof. and gluten-free, as always.
