5 Jewish Recipes to Make with Summer Tomatoes

Whether you’re growing your own tomatoes in the backyard (like me!), getting barrels of tomatoes in a CSA, or just buying the bounty of tomatoes at your supermarket, it’s hard to ignore that it’s thoroughly tomato season. And sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do with all those bright beauties.

You may be surprised to learn there are actually many Jewish recipes made with fresh tomatoes, particularly of Sephardi origins. So instead of just plopping those tomatoes on top of a salad, or slicing them up for sandwiches, try using those tomatoes in a fresh Jewish dish!
