Tomatoes are one of the true stars of the Mediterranean diet. Homegrown or sold at your local farmer’s market, simply sliced and served with only a sprinkle of salt or a drizzle of olive oil, they are the essence of summer. Fresh–including cherry, grape, and plum varieties–or canned, they’re also a versatile staple that partners beautifully with herbs and other vegetables in a wide range of traditional dishes including ratatouille and gazpacho. And of course, tomato sauce and pasta are a match made in heaven.
