Late Summer Sauteed Tomatoes with Sweet & Savory Onions

We have definitely had a late summer around here.  The tomatoes are finally beginning to ripen and are available at the farmer’s markets.  I never thought it would happen.

There is nothing better than a fresh, juicy tomato, but when you saute them delicately with some onions and white wine…they become even more magical.  Each bite bursts with flavor and becomes a wonderful complement to any meal.  The capers really add a lot to the dish, don’t leave them out!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we did, they made us feel like summer is never going to end.

Late Summer Sauteed Tomatoes with Sweet & Savory Onions
Serves four

1 Tablespoon olive oil
4 shallots, sliced
1 small vidalia sweet onion, sliced
2 pints grape tomatoes
Kosher salt and black pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine (we used our Pinot Blanc)
2 Tablespoons capers

Heat your oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the onions and cook about 5 minutes, or until they are softened and showing a little browning on the edges.

Add the tomatoes, 1 teaspoon Kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.  Stir the pan until four or five of the tomatoes began to burst open.  This could take 3-5 minutes.

Add the wine and continue to cook until almost evaporated, another 5 minutes.  Stir in the capers.

Serve slightly warm or room temperature.

Savor these!
