10 Fresh Tomato Salads for Summer

I love tomatoes and cook with them year round. In the summer my favorite thing to do is make fresh tomato salads. The tomatoes are so ripe and sweet they don’t need to be cooked. Then they can be paired with all sorts of wonderful things like peaches, cheeses, onions, greens, and more. I also love the look of tomato salads. A classic caprese can look so beautiful you barely want to eat it! Here are some fresh tomato salads that are guaranteed to brighten your table this summer.
