Ideas for End of Season Tomatoes

End of season tomato salsa
I hate to see tomato season come to an end.  I just love fresh garden tomatoes!  Here are a couple of ideas to try:

  • Tomato Butter.  Broil cherry tomatoes until the skins blister and juices are released; let cool.  Blitz with salt in a food processor until coarsely pureed, then stir into softened butter.  Great with grilled fish, cooked rice or crostini.
  • Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salsa.  Dice ripe tomatoes and combine with raw corn kernels, diced avocado, chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice.  Add some minced serrano chile for a little heat (optional).  Season with salt and more lime juice.
  • Tomato-Feta Open-Face Sandwich.  Lightly toast thick slices of white bread, the drizzle with olive oil.  Add tomato slices, salt and freshly ground black pepper, slabs of feta, fresh oregano and more oil.
