Virtual CSA Box: Tomatoes

Pin it button big

Do we really need any help deciding what to do with our summer tomatoes? It's high tomato season, and they should be showing up in CSA boxes around the country. We love summer tomatoes, especially the ugly ones. What will you do with yours?

Here's a few tips to keep in mind. Don't put fresh tomatoes in the fridge - it makes them mealy and mushy. Do, however, put them in the oven and make Oven Dried Tomatoes - this brings out their flavor so well. More recipes and ideas below...

Our Mozzacado Sandwich puts fresh tomatoes to good use, as does the classic Insalata Caprese and this Tomato and Squash Gratin. Try a fresh Pico de Gallo too.

Elsewhere, we're hungering for the Wednesday Chef's Tomatoes Filled with Rice and Kalyn's Zucchini Salad with Tomato. This White Bean and Cherry Tomato Salad looks cool and delicious.
