Welcome to another round of Taste Testing Tuesday! Its that time of year again when the tomatoes are getting ripe and there is usually an abundance of them. And tomatoes are so good for you! So for today’s taste test, let’s look at some ideas for eating tomatoes raw.
#1.) Try them plain with nothing on them. If it’s a ripe tomato, you might just like it as it is.
#2.) With salt and pepper. This is how I used to love them when I was a kid. (Yes, the little eggs are my salt and pepper shakers.) 😉
Doesn’t that look yummy?
#3.) With some sugar sprinkled on top. My grandmother used to fix sliced tomatoes this way.
#4.) Sprinkled with basil or even a little oregano.
I’m drooling looking at this picture!
#5.) With some taco seasoning added. This smells delicious!
#6.) Top the tomato with your favorite salad dressing. I used Ranch dressing.
#7.) Sprinkle some grated mozzarella cheese on top. Mmmm! 🙂
Of course, raw tomato is great sliced and added to a sandwich or chopped up and tossed in with a salad. I hope these suggestions will give you some ideas to try and you’ll find some new ways to enjoy raw tomatoes! 🙂
