Tomatoes are a summertime favorite. On a hot day, there’s nothing better than putting a slice of juicy, ripe tomatoes in your mouth. Here are some ways to enjoy tomatoes this season.
You can snack on fresh tomatoes, freshly sliced mozzarella, and basil drizzled in olive oil and maybe some balsamic vinegar. To enhance the flavor, sprinkle some salt.
Tomatoes on a Grill
Grilling tomatoes gives them a smokey flavor. These tomatoes are great paired with hamburgers, steaks, or kabobs. Just slice them thinly and place them on the grill for 3 minutes each side.
This salsa/bruschetta can be used on chips, burgers, or pasta. Mix the chopped tomatoes and garlic together and season it with salt and pepper. It’s possible to add bits of mozzarella cheese and red pepper flakes, basil oregano, as well as black olives, to enhance the flavors. All of it should be drizzled with olive oil.
Skillet Tomatoes With Melted Cheese
This dish is great for cheese lovers. Place the tomatoes in a skillet coated with olive oil. Let them cook on both sides. Then, sprinkle a little shredded cheese (gruyere or mozzarella) on top. Sprinkle some chopped basil on top.
Open Faced Tomato Sandwich
Cut a tomato in thick slices. Two slices are enough to make the “bread”. For the “bread”, place one slice of feta, mozzarella, or any other cheese you like on top. Add basil, oregano or any other herb to the top of your cheese. Add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar to finish. To complete the sandwich, place the second slice tomato on top.
Tomato Tuna Cup
Tuna can be prepared in any way you prefer. Take a half-tomato and scoop the flesh out. It’s okay to keep it as it can be used in tomato-based dishes. After each side has been cleaned, add tuna to the top. If you like, top with lettuce and cheese.
Tomato Avocado Tower
Slice a tomato and an avocado in thick slices. Next, stack them on top of one another alternately. Continue this process until you run out of slices. Use olive oil and balsamic vinegar to drizzle the tower.
