Heirloom Tomato & Feta Quinoa Tabouli

Being a member of Scribe Winery has been the gift that keeps giving. This weekend I took my friend Leslie, who was visiting from Charlotte, to pick up my third quarter shipment. Not only did she get to see the beauty that is Scribe with a complimentary glass of wine in hand, but we got to take home heirloom tomatoes from their garden.

Alanna and I strategically have wine club memberships near each other, so we made the rounds…

There is really only one way to eat homegrown, ripe heirloom tomatoes: raw. Maybe paired with cheese. Dinner was obvious.
