Best to Buy

Tomatoes should be firm and juicy with bright, unblemished skin. Choose those that have a deep color and give a little when squeezed. And remember: a ripe tomato smells like a tomato; unripe ones have no aroma.

Prep & Store

Rinse tomatoes before using. Quick tip: To peel, drop into boiling water for one to two minutes. Then remove, dunk briefly in a bowl of ice water, and cut out a small cone around the stem end to slip off the skin.

Quick & Easy Recipe

For a simple side, slice tomatoes, drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the top, and then season with a sprinkle of sea salt.

Nutrition Notes

Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A.

    Outstanding! I am a family nurse practitioner working at an Urgent Care. These health tips are practical and spot on for everyone! Thanks also for reminding parents to check the doses of OTC pain relievers for their kiddos. Note: Under the aspirin if someone IS experiencing chest pain, after taking the aspirin they should be calling 911. thanks! AE FNP
