One of my favorite things about summer is the fresh homegrown tomato. It was always fun to run around outside and snatch cherry tomatoes off the vine. The crunch and squirt of a fresh cherry tomato always reminds me of summer. It might be harder to find perfectly ripe, juicy tomatoes these days but your local roadside stand or farmer's market usually has a nice variety.
Whether you roast them, slice and dice them, toss them in a salad, or serve them atop a burger you can't go wrong. But have you ever tried tomatoes my favorite way? Macerated? Tomatoes are a fruit after all... Try your summer's best tomatoes diced with a sprinkling of sugar on top. Let them sit for a minute and stir them around. I think macerated tomatoes go best with freshly fried fish -- a lovely alternative to fish and chips. Try them other ways too like with a nice cheese, some herbs, or maybe....strawberries?
