Heirloom tomato and white bean salad with fresh basil and garlic

There is nothing like fresh tomatoes in the summer time.  I love the way they smell and especially the way they taste, simple with just a sprinkle of salt.  A ripe tomato doesn’t need much and this simple and satisfying salad showcases this summertime fruit without overpowering or overdoing it.
