Marinated Tomatoes make a tasty side dish just as they make an amazing blend of flavors to serve over a bed of Spinach Leaves. Whichever way it is that you serve this recipe, make it bolder with NatureSweet Eclipses.
I happen to live in a part of the country that does not offer the most flavorful local tomatoes. In fact, often times I purchase vine ripe tomatoes with the understanding that I am buying them just to add a little color to whatever I’m cooking. Of course, when I am serving Marinated Tomatoes I absolutely must have a flavorful tomato.
Enter: NatureSweet Eclipses.
Have you seen NatureSweet Eclipses in the produce section at your local grocery store? They are sold in four count or twelve count packages and can often be found near the Cherubs and Sunbursts. Eclipses deep color might come as a surprise and it is highly possible that you have looked right over them without even realizing what you were missing out on. These new and exciting NatureSweet tomatoes are much darker than your average red tomato and along with the gorgeous deep color Eclipses have a delicious rich flavor.
Take those bold NatureSweet Eclipses, add another type of tomato (or two), mix up a marinade of fresh and ground seasonings then toss them together to create a delicious colorful dish that is sure to wow.
