7 Terrific Tomato Recipes

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Confession: I'm a tomato snob. I won't eat fresh ones nine months of the year. To me, biting into a tomato and expecting red, ripe, juicy goodness and getting a mouthful of mealy, flavorless mush isn't worth it.

Thankfully, it's tomato season, which means I'm eating these beauties morning, noon and night. Green zebras, hefty mortgage lifters, tiny little purple Cherokees... red, yellow, green, and all colors in between... raw, cooked... You get the picture!

I'm sure I'm not alone in my love of summer tomatoes, so that's why this week's menu honors my favorite summer crop!

What is your favorite way to eat them? Lately, I've been enjoying salads with tomatoes, basil, avocado and arugula, with olive oil and lots of cracked black pepper!
