So maybe you don't have a summer vacation to France on the books — that's OK! Instead, head to the farmers market, load up on the juiciest tomatoes you can find, and take a trip to France through your kitchen. These seven recipes are both classic and inspired, and they all taste perfectly of the season — no matter where you are.

1. Tomato Tarte Tatin

While this classic French dish is usually made with apples and served for dessert, we love this savory twist that's made easy with frozen puff pastry.

2. Easy French Ratatouille

Combine the best of summer produce in one pot — juicy tomatoes, tender zucchini, meaty eggplant, and sweet bell peppers — and you have one of the season's best recipes.

3. How To Make a Niçoise Salad

While there are countless ways to make a Niçoise salad, we firmly believe the tomatoes aren't optional — especially in peak tomato season.

4. Summer Vegetable Gratin

While many gratins are heavy and rich, this one is anything but. There's not a touch of cream in sight and it's topped with a simple mixture of bread crumbs, Parmesan, and herbs.

5. Tomato and Feta Galette

This free-form tart is just as nice served at room temperature as it is served warm, which means it's the perfect addition to your next picnic.

6. Pan Bagna

If you're craving the components of a Nicoise salad but either want to take your meal to go or just want something a little heartier, this traditional sandwich is exactly what you're looking for.

7. How To Make a Foolproof Quiche

You can put just about anything in a quiche, but tomatoes are especially nice this time of year. Seed them and pat them dry so that they won't make the quiche too wet and runny.
