A succulent homegrown tomato is one of summer’s greatest pleasures – no matter how you slice it. Add a sprinkle of salt, and you’ve got a delicious, refreshing snack!
Pastas, salsas, soups, and your favorite sandwich also feature this fruit (or vegetable, depending on who you ask), which comes in varieties ranging from beefsteak to grape. Enjoy these little orbs often for maximum health benefits, including boosted heart health and cancer prevention. They’re an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and fiber.
Michele Reneau, of Signal Mountain, loves creating simple, healthy dishes that her four kids will enjoy. Michele’s vibrant pico de gallo recipe is a household favorite for its creaminess (thanks to the avocado) and versatility – use it as a topping for salmon or chicken, add it to omelets, quesadillas, and salads, or eat it by itself with tortilla chips!
