Fresh tomatoes are plentiful this time of year. If you haven’t cashed in on one of the most flavorful veggies of the summer, what are you waiting for? Not only are they tasty, they are also packed with nutrition. Read on for the Top Ten Ways to Enjoy Tomatoes from fruitsandveggies.org.
If you don’t have tomatoes growing in your garden, check the farmers market, or shop for locally grown produce at the grocery store. If you think you don’t like tomatoes, I challenge you to give them another try. There’s nothing quite like a fresh tomato right off the vine.
Cherry tomatoes are my favorite variety. When I harvest them fresh from my garden, or have a neighbor share their crop, my mouth waters in anticipation. After I’ve enjoyed them fresh, I’ll throw some into a recipe. Parmesan Zucchini Tomato Pasta is a favorite of mine.
