If you have a garden at your house, chances are, you are drowning in tomatoes right now. And chances are, your grill is getting a lot of use as well.

This month, we’ve been grilling like there’s no tomorrow, and trying to use up the produce coming out of our container garden. I’ve got lots of herbs growing, as well and six varieties of tomatoes, tomatillos, and even some peppers.

When my tomatoes are ripe and tangy, I will eat them like apples. However, slicing them and piling them on all sorts of salads is my preference.

This manly steak salad is loaded with fresh tomato wedges, and a few surprise ingredients!

When Lt. Dan and I started dating, I discovered the he had a similar association to steak sauce. His family would eat it with cold steak and sharp cheddar cheese. This made it clear to me that we were meant to be.
