Making "so-so" tomatoes more flavorful
Some years ago, I was watching Michelle Urvater on the cooking channel, and she said that if your tomatoes were not as tasty as you'd like, like when they're out of season, to squeeze a bit of lemon juice on top.
That does help, and a light sprinkling of sugar makes them even better.
But I've found something even better, thanks to a hint from a friend. There is a salad dressing called "Hendrixson's" that is made from white balsamic vinegar, a trace of olive oil, plus herbs and seasonings. It's great on all sorts of fresh vegetables, and has zero calories.
But it's especially good for tomatoes. Just splash a bit on the sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar/and or salt.
Krogers carries it, and I'm sure lots of other places do to.
