12 Tasty Ways to Love Tomatoes

9. Lacinato (Dinosaur) Kale with Cherry Tomatoes & Garlic

I am always thankful to find another good kale recipe and this is one of the simplest and tastiest I’ve stumbled upon. Garlic, sweet cherry tomatoes and a little bit of bullion or broth turn a big bunch of kale into a true treat.

10. Chopped Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Herbs & Feta

This simple salad is so flavorful, flesh and flexible that it’s become one of my favorites. Also a perfect way to make use of summer’s sometimes overwhelming bounty of cukes, tomatoes and fresh herbs.

11. Sweet Corn, Tomato & Basil Salad

My mom-in-law makes this often and I find it positively addictive! Sweet, fresh, flavorful and very very easy… (a great way to make use of leftover corn on the cob, too.)

12. Heirloom Tomato Salsa
Once you’ve made your own salsa, it’s pretty hard to go back to store-bought. Although you can just make this as a one-time treat, I recommend making a big batch and canning some to use throughout the year — soooooo good!
