The Salad Ready Tomato Wedges are available in two varieties, classic red and tri-color. The tri-color variety features red, orange and yellow tomatoes. Each variety is marinated in olive oil and Italian spices blend. Even though the tomatoes are in olive oil and Italian spices, those flavors do not overpower the fresh, seasonal inherent tomato flavor.

Recently, I had the opportunity to try both the traditional red and the tri-color tomatoes. Personally, I am drawn to the tri-colored variety because I try to eat the rainbow (plus, the extra colors make for a pretty plate). One of the easiest recipes for these tomatoes is a traditional pasta salad. In my version, I add together the tomatoes, green peppers for crunch, black olives for salt, mozzarella for protein and your preferred-shape pasta. Then top the salad with some fresh basil, salt and pepper. It is simple, easy and quick weeknight meal.

Even though I thoroughly enjoy a simple recipe, the texture and taste of the Salad Ready Tomato Wedges inspired me to think beyond the simple pasta salad. From a robust fritta to a hearty panzanella, there are numerous options for these tomatoes. Now, when I have a tomato craving, any time of the year, I can satisfy it.
