Tricking Tomatoes To Be Juicy

Summer tomatoes are such a short short season for those of us who adore their juicy, sweet taste! There's nothing like a summer tomato, the taste is so distinct I dream about them. However, when you just can't wait and you need a tomato fix there is a solution - or as close as you can come to one.

By roasting tomatoes you can enjoy their juicy taste all year long. This concentrates the tomato flavor to create that ripened, just-picked tomato taste. Simply cut the tomatoes and roast (450) for 15-20 minutes until they are red, shriveled little goodnesses. Tonight, I took them out a couple minutes early, added some basil and haloumi (the greek version of mozzarella), salt, pepper, a drizzle of GOOD olive oil and broiled them for another couple of minutes. And shall we say, a summer dinner is served!
