My new tomato recipe of the week is panzanella. It was featured in the dailySpark recently. There are quite as few variations listed in SparkRecipes.

Mine had some cheese in it for protein, plus tomatoes, one cuke, some red and green pepper, a little cauliflower, basil, parsley, whole wheat bread rubbed with garlic, and Italian salad dressing.

I take tomatoes, cukes, chi-chi beans, green/hot peppers and cover with an oil & vinegar dressing. If I am feeling dangerous I will put in wheel pasta.

Thanks for the salsa recipe, Karen! I will have to try that. We have tons of tomatoes.

The link you gave in the post below this one is not working for me. Does it work for you?

for a healthy salsa reciep,sorry no measurements as i never use it and most of my reciepies are in my head.

tomatoes lots of them,
olive oil about two table spoons,
garlic(to your own taste i like alot)
onions 1-2
carrots 2-3 finely grated
celery a couple of sticks
zucchini-1
herbs and spices of your choice(i use cayanne pepper,thyme,oregano,sage and basilikum,salt and pepper.)
blend all together to the consistancy you want.

use as a salsa dip or can cook to use as a sauce for spaghetti,ragout,raviollietc or to use as a base for tomatoe soup just add a bit of creme´fresch light or some milk or low fat cream,serve with some croutons and a sprig of basilikum for decoration.

the beauty of tomatoe is that they are so versitile and when in season very cheap for little calories.i for one am a big tomatoe fan and use tomatoes at least once a day.

With a bumper crop of tomatoes, I was checking to see if we had a good collection of tomato recipes. Sadly, no.

However, I did rediscover a recipe I had forgotten all about! (See below.)
I also relearned that tomatoes should be eaten with a bit of fat! I had forgotten that!

I could add a Greek salad here. (Cukes, tomaotes, and feta) and a few other recipes. I'll be back.

Do you have any recipes to share?

Does anyone have a favorite salsa recipe?

My kids like me to buy it, but making it has got to be cheaper - especially this time of year.

Here's a link for a super easy pasta dish. You don't cook anything except the pasta!

I was surprised how good it was.

The day I made it we had no green onions so I left them out and added another clove of garlic. I also used olive oil instead of margarine because I believe it's healthier.

I'm fairly sure I cut back on the salt too.

It's tomato season!

"Although commonly regarded and categorized as a vegetable, the tomato is really a fruit, a very healthful one. Tomatoes are known for being exceptionally high in lycopene, a carotenoid that has antioxidant properties and may help prevent cancer and heart disease. Eating tomatoes with fat (try to choose a healthy fat source like avocado, olive oil, or nuts) increases your body's ability to absorb the lycopene.

Besides that famous carotenoid, tomatoes are also a rich source of vitamin C, folate (folic acid), riboflavin, and chromium, each with its own extensive list of health benefits."

I'll admit I didn't know that we should eat tomatoes with a bit of fat. I thought I was doing a good thing if I ate them with out any oil or fat! I guess it was a good thing I put some cheese in my tomato sandwich this afternoon.

Please share your favorite tomato recipes here.
