Or are you looking for tasty ways to use winter tomatoes you bought at the grocery store and forgot? I’ve got you covered with an awesome list of 35+ fresh tomato recipe to use fresh tomatoes year-round.
But first, I must admit, I wasn’t always a tomatoes fan.
Then way back in the winter of 2006, on the very last page of the December edition of Gourmet magazine I saw a simple cherry tomato recipe. It was a napa cabbage, avocado tomato salad.
It had a tangy lemony Dijon dressing that I couldn’t resist
I bought a package of out of season cherry tomatoes and made that avocado tomato salad using romaine instead of napa cabbage.
It was SO good I made it all winter.
And I’ve been hooked on tomatoes ever since!
What to Do with Lots of Fresh Tomatoes
My new love of tomatoes led me on my great tomato garden experiment.
From traditional grape and cherry tomatoes to mini Roma tomatoes, yellow tear drops and chocolate sprinkle tomatoes. I’ve perfected growing small tomatoes in pots in my very small vegetable garden.
The last few seasons I had bumper tomato crops and had to figure out what to do with lots of tomatoes.
We share some with neighbors and we eat them while we pick.
When the tomato bowl starts to overflow my go to cherry tomato recipe has been roasting tomatoes on high heat tossed in olive oil with lots of fresh garlic, sea salt and a little red pepper flake.
Its an an easy tomato recipe and a great tomato side dish when you have lots of cherry tomatoes and other small tomatoes to use up!
This summer I decided to expand beyond my go to tomato recipe and explore new to me tomato recipes.
