When I stayed at the Mondavi’s recently, Rob and Lydia took Mike and I to lunch at their Folio Enoteca in the public market in Napa called the Oxbow. The food was fabulous! I’ll never forget the delicious tomato salad. I asked Rob if I could share the recipe with you, and always the nice guy… he said yes.  Enjoy!
