Egg Salad on Tomato Star

Egg Salad on Tomato Star

One of our favorite gluten-free lunches while the tomatoes are summer-ripe is an old standby, egg salad, served on top of a star of tomato wedges.  This gluten-free egg salad is garnished with kalamata olive halves.  I used a Roma tomato this time, but any large, fresh, ripe tomato is good.
