Tomatoes are a great thing. Though thought of as a vegetable, they are biologically a fruit. They also improve nutritionally upon being cooked. We eat them raw; and cooked as a sauce over pasta, vegetables, or meats; as a tomato juice; and as tomato soup. Sun-dried tomatoes and herbs in olive oil are a wonderful additional use that goes great as an antipasto and with salads such as Salad Niçoise.
