Ok, so I've looked around and I cannot find a recipe for this. I was visiting Denver over Labor Day and found the AMAZING "Caveman Cafeteria" Paleo truck at The Taste of Denver. They served the most amazing short ribs plus some "Salt Cured Tomatoes". I'm really hoping someone can point me to a recipe to make these at home as I have more tomatoes from my garden that I know what to do with!

Do you think it is just tomatoes + apple cider vinegar + salt? Kind of like refrigerator pickles?

This food was amazing BTW. I really wished I lived in CO so I could visit this truck every day!

to salt rub cure tomatoes:

slice your tomatoes, put them on a cookie rack, salt generously (the coarser the better), and let them sit for 20-30 minutes.

I usually serve with oil and vinegar (they are too salty on their own).

to salt cure (pickle) tomatoes: slice tomatoes and place in a jar with heavily salted water (other pickling spices can be used too). Let sit for 10 days.

There are basically two options for slicing: 1) Slice 1/4" like you would see on a sandwhich 2) slice into quarters and remove the seeds (this looks really good on steaks)
