Top 5 Favorite Tomato Recipes for Summer

Aug 7th 2019

Let’s talk tomatoes! They are hands down our favorite food of August. Tomatoes are at their peak of seasonality this month. It’s like a taste of summer with every bite! And if you can get an heirloom or freshly-picked tomato, you’re in luck! Plus, tomatoes are low calorie and high in vitamins and antioxidants. What’s not to love?

Here are our top 5 favorite tomato Recipes. We hope you try them and enjoy!

Balsamic Tomato Salad

It doesn’t get much more simple than this. Fresh juicy tomatoes in a simple dressing. This recipe from @thespruceeats lets the tomatoes really be the star.

Pan Con Tomate

This take by @bonappetit is a twist on northern Spain’s Tomato Bread. Thick crusty bread is a must. Slather that with tomatoes, olive oil, and some sea salt and enjoy as an appetizer.

Slow Roasted Tomato Basil Pasta

We love this recipe from @howsweeteats, despite Jessica’s admission that it’s high maintenance! It’s worth it! Something about the roasting of tomatoes makes this version extra special!

Tomato Tart

This would make a delicious early evening supper. Tomatoes, herbs, and cheese all baked in a pastry crust. Upscale comfort food at it’s finest.


We would be remiss if we didn’t have a great gazpacho recipe on this list, and this one from @gimmesomeoven fits the bill. Perfect for days when it’s simply too hot to cook and you are craving something cool and light.

And as a bonus, from our friends @foodandwine, here are 5 ways to enjoy tomatoes for dessert

Yes… that’s right. Dessert.
