Tasty Tomatoes are a great addition to any meal. This tomato recipe, developed by SunRipe Produce, meets nutritional standards set by Produce for Better Health Foundation.

Tomatoes are an important dietary source of lycopene, an antioxidant being studied for its ability to keep tissues healthy. Tomatoes also are high in vitamins and fiber – one medium red tomato has 20 percent of the daily requirements of vitamin A, 40 percent of the daily requirements of vitamin C and as much fiber as a slice of whole-wheat bread.
