Fresh homegrown tomatoes are a summer favorite, and so are recipes using fresh tomatoes. This year I’m growing two kinds of cherry tomatoes in my garden along with fresh herbs. And finding beautiful local heirloom tomatoes at the farmers’ market.

Toss chopped tomatoes with sweet onion, lime juice, fresh cilantro, and jalapeno peppers for a simple fresh tomato salsa. Or try a pesto pasta salad made with fresh basil and roasted garlic (with zucchini pasta of course).
