One of the season's most treasured moments is taking that first bite of a sun-ripened tomato fresh from your garden. Of course, before too long, you might wonder just when your garden will stop blessing you with the ripe fruit! Of course, there are always ways to preserve your tomatoes for future use (I'd suggest you take a look at Preserve Your Garden for a few ideas on that topic), it seems a shame to not take advantage of the freshness factor.

One of the best ways to take advantage of fresh tomatoes is to avoid a lot of tampering with them. Either fresh from the garden or just slightly warmed, they maintain so much of their sun-ripened flavor. If you stew them for hours, some of that delightful flavor becomes tempered. That's why I love adding them fresh to my favorite salads and sliced over a great sandwich. That's where they really shine this time of the year. And, while having some of that bounty saved for later on in the year will send smiles around your table year round, there's something truly wonderful about being able to offer your loved ones a taste of nature's treasure -- only moments after being harvested.

Therefore, this month, I'm sharing some of my favorite ways to take advantage of fresh tomatoes. Not -- of course -- counting nibbling on them right in the garden!
