?Some say toe-may-toe………… some say toe-ma-toe?
Cabernet Tomatoes are both sweet and juicy, I am hooked on their unique flavor! The tomatoes I purchased were grown in a greenhouse in British Columbia, Canada. You would never have known the difference from those grown outdoors! This was my first purchase of this incredibly beautiful and tasty wine colored tomato. Of course the color and the name is what caught my attention! The individual who named these tomatoes should get an A+ in marketing!
I used them on a tossed salad (BORING!), but the possibilities are endless! And to be honest, I plopped a few in my mouth as I was waiting for dinner to finish. THAT is when I realized how good they were. I gave one to my (pretty fussy about eating only garden grown tomatoes) husband and he totally agreed!
Below are seven incredibly delicious ways I would use the cabernet tomatoes, or any cherry tomato. I’d love it if you would send me your ideas for these beauties!
Just click on the recipe links (highlighted in #1, #3, #5 and #6) below and you will go directly to my blog where you will find easy comfort food recipes made from scratch and made with wholesome ingredients!
1) Yummy in my Pickly Tomato Coleslaw
2) “Mini Pizzas” – EASY lunch or dinner idea, that kids will love! Also a great dinner for small families or those dining solo and don’t want an entire pizza. Recipe here: Spread thin layer of pizza sauce on English muffin that has been lightly toasted. Top with other pizza toppings of choice – pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, etc. AND some sliced cabernet (cherry sized) tomatoes. (Better yet, have ingredients ready and let everyone make their own!) Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese. Put on cookie sheet, place in toaster oven or oven and bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and muffins are brown around the edges. The addition of tomatoes as a pizza topping is something you have to try if you have never done so. It makes the top of the pizza slightly juicy and over the top flavorful!
3) Perfect in Tomato Salad
4) Chopped up in cheesy scrambled eggs
5) Delicious in Italian Antipasto Pasta Salad
6) Divine in Raw Kale Salad
7) Last but not least, snack on them – 7 cherry sized tomatoes only have 15 calories, .3 grams of fat, and are loaded with Vitamins A & C!
So, while we patiently await another 45 days or so for the home grown tomatoes to ripen, I’m going to buy up as many Cabernet tomatoes as I can!
