I have no idea how we’re suddenly in the month of September, but there’s the calendar staring me in the face so I can’t deny that summer is winding down. But there are still several weeks of summer left, so this week’s round-up is reminding you about the Late Summer Tomato Salads that are so perfect and amazing right now! And whether you’re growing your own tomatoes or going to the Farmer’s Market, late summer tomatoes are a wonderful thing to celebrate.
Every year I want to keep making my favorite summer foods as long as I possibly can. And I think when summer starts winding down those flavors of summer taste even better, so hopefully you’re enjoying summer produce long into fall. Right? Here are the late summer summer tomato salads I think you should be making this week, and I hope you have some wonderful garden tomatoes you can use to try a few of them! And Happy Labor Day Weekend if you’re in the U.S.!

In late summer tomatoes, zucchini, and fresh basil will all be plentiful, and you can use all those ingredients in these Grilled Zucchini Caprese Stacks!
Green beans are also plentiful in late summer and this Green Bean and Tomato Salad also has fresh basil to bump up the flavors!
Another summer-into-fall salad that uses those abundant zucchini is this Bacon, Tomato, and Zucchini Salad with Feta! I love all the flavors here.
Tuna Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Parsley, and Mint uses lots of late summer tomatoes, cucumbers, and herbs in a tasty main-dish salad with tuna.
If you’ve ever grown cherry tomatoes you know how they just keep on coming and coming, and you can make this Cherry Tomato Caprese Salad long into fall!
I love this amazing Tomato, Hearts of Palm, Olive, and Feta Salad with Basil Vinaigrette. I first made this salad in 2006 (!) and I think I’ve made it every single summer since then!
