Gouda & Grape Tart with Home made salsa

Perfect summer snack!
Summer perfect snack of easy tart with salsa as a base and green grapes, gouda cheese and tomato.

Things are getting out of hand at the moment. 
I have a pile of laundry waiting to be folded..flower pots that badly need weeding..articles to be submitted...pics from last week's shoot yet to be transferred..couple of recipes to be developed..some marketing agendas that I need to take care of..and lets not forget baby D. Why is it summer vacation?? And when will the summer camp start!!! Pulling my hair out trying to keep her occupied and not get into too much mischief all through the day. 

So this is going to be a quick post.  
Let's get down to business now, shall we?? 

If you recall a few weeks back, I posted a rather delicious Savory chicken galette with basil pesto..?? Remember?? Well click on the link and refresh your memory. We had it twice in the same week. It was THAT good!

Now for the veggie version with the tart base.. Yum Yum Yum!
If you are anything like us, you naturally veer towards all things non-vegetarian. Ergo the chicken galette. But then come the Meatless Mondays and Thursday!! I start suffering from veggie dinner woes two days before these meatless days. However, this was so so good that I didn't miss the meat, well almost :P 

A perfect summery dish that's light yet filling, with just the hint of heat to ensure that you tumm isn't burning and oh yes, loaded with the goodness of gouda, fresh heirloom tomatoes and grapes!! They really add a burst of sweetness to this otherwise tomato tart and make it much more special.
Now for the base, feel free to do as you want. You can use the basil pesto I used in the galette, leave it as it is or use my Home made Salsa, just like I did. Its brilliant..sets off the tomatoes beautifully and adds a much needed zing to the otherwise simple tart. 
Scatter some chiffonades of fresh basil..a few black olives and you are done!! 
Dinner is served in 20 mins.. Thank you.

Serving Suggestions: Pair this incredibly delicious, easy and light tart with a nice cold pasta salad, some Rum & Raisin Brownies and a glass of Pomegranate margaritas for a wonderful dinner.
