Tomatoes! Easy Ways To Enjoy Them

We love tomatoes! They are always a season favorite. Here  are a few easy ways to enjoy their incredible flavor.

Feta tomato salad:

Arrange sliced tomatoes on a platter and top with chopped or small leaves of fresh oregano and crumbled feta. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top and season with salt and pepper.

Slow-roasted tomatoes:

Cut tomatoes in half and put on a rimmed baking sheet, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and season with herbes de Provence, chopped garlic, salt, and pepper. Roast at 250° until shrunk by half but still juicy, about 8 hours. Serve on toasted baguette slices with fresh mozzarella.

Cherry tomato and garlic pan sauce:

Sauté cherry tomatoes in olive oil with garlic, salt, and pepper until tomatoes pop, 5 to 10 minutes. Toss with pasta.

Chopped Fresh Tomato Salsa:
Makes 1 1/2 cups
•    1/2 medium white onion, chopped
•    1 to 2 serrano peppers or 1 small jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded (optional), and finely chopped

•    2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
