My kitchen is never without at least pint of grape tomatoes on the counter during tomato season. And I’m even happier when there are a few big tomatoes to go with them, too.

There are endless possibilities with tomatoes. You can roast them to make them last longer or leave them raw and toss them into lots of different vegetarian and vegan meals. Tomatoes at their prime are one of the most exciting things about summer.

Salads

Roasted Cherry Tomato Vinaigrette

When you make roasted cherry tomato vinaigrette, you end up with both dressing and toppings for your salad. Toss the vinaigrette with mixed greens and shaved Parmesan.

Marinated in white wine vinegar and olive oil, this simple raw tomato chili mozzarella salad is fresh with a pungent kick from red chilies.

Fresh Corn Tomato Salad

Raw corn kernels sliced straight off the cob are the base of this fresh corn tomato salad. I give the corn and tomatoes plenty of time to marinate in the vinaigrette.

Slow-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

These slow-roasted cherry tomatoes are the perfect way to do some preserving at the end the season. Roasted for longer at a lower temperature, they turn out a little drier and chewier at the edges than quick oven-roasted tomatoes.
