It's Tomato Time

by Jeff Flynt

Now is a good time to start figuring out what to do with your tomatoes.

From the size of a tomato (cherry, roma, beefsteak) to the color (heirloom tomatoes come in some crazy shades), there are no shortage of the fruit during the summer months.

First of all, to help you with choosing your tomatoes wisely, there is some help.

Tomatoes are not the best hand-fruit, but they are tremendous raw.

There are a couple of recipes from Southern Living that can pique your interest in trying something new. 

The first is for a Tortellini and Tomato Salad.

The second is for Grilled Tomatoes with a Basil Vinaigrette.

Not only are tomatoes versatile, but they're good for you too.

Enjoy the splendors of summer by allowing yourself to use tomatoes in as many ways as you can.
