I say tomato, you say tomahto, but I think we can all agree that it’s a wonderful time of year when they’re ripening in abundance. I wish I were the type of person to have a million tomato plants about to bear fruit in my garden, because there really is nothing better than fresh-picked tomatoes. I could eat them for days! As it is, I have to rely on my local farm stand, plus friends with greener thumbs than mine, to satisfy my sweet tomato tooth.
I thought we could all celebrate the late summer’s bounty with a collection of tomato recipes. Let’s be honest – the best way to eat perfect tomatoes is just plain, or with a sprinkle of salt and drizzle of olive oil. But should you ever tire of that simple preparation – or want something a bit fancier or more substantial – check out the recipes below in all their sweet, juicy, tomato-y glory.
One thing I can definitively say after drooling over all these recipes is that tomatoes and cheese are MEANT to be together. It was all I could do not to put together 20 tomato + burrata recipes! Although come to think of it, that would have been a great idea… and now I’m dreaming of traveling to Italy and eating my way through all the tomatoes and cheese in that whole country. Mmmm yes please. But these recipes will have to do for now. So here they are – 20 mouthwatering summer tomato recipes!
