Fried Green Tomatoes
Fried green tomatoes are a classic, but few people outside of the South attempt to make them. However, it's a versatile dish that is incredibly easy to make — they're great as a side dish, on top of a burger or sandwich, or as an appetizer. And kids tend to love them, too, so they are an easy addition to any family meal. The key to this dish is that the green tomatoes are more solid than riper tomatoes, and they hold up better to frying. Make sure to serve them piping hot and try to stick to Southern tradition by having a bit of pimento cheese on the side. Click here to see Green Tomatoes for Everyone.

Grilled Tomatoes
Think of this as a cool-weather option for grilled tomatoes. Although these grilled tomatoes are cooked under a broiler, one could argue that a broiler is essentially an upside-down grill. Besides, once you sink your teeth into the bubbling hot spinach stuffing, it won't really matter exactly how these tomatoes were cooked. These tomatoes are extremely popular at Joe's Stone Crab, with locations in Miami, Chicago, and Las Vegas. See all spinach recipes.

Fresh Tomato Stew and Burrata
OK, full disclosure: I did not come up with this recipe all on my own. It's the creation of the talented chef Didier Mantarou, and I had the privilege of trying it first-hand at his restaurant Miel Brassiere in Boston. I thought of this recipe when I went to develop one with olive oil because it's the exact kind of recipe where the role of olive oil, and the quality of it, is important to the dish. You'll see that this is so much more than a tomato and mozzarella dish (the burrata could've told you that), and it's incredibly easy to prepare. Click here to see Why You Should Cook with Olive Oil.

Stewed Tomatoes with Polenta
The beauty of heirloom tomatoes is that they’re so good they can be eaten raw, which is why I only stewed some of the tomatoes in this recipe. Ironically enough, I couldn’t find heirlooms at the store, so I didn’t feel as guilty about it. This is a very elegant dish that’s really easy to make. All it takes is marsala cooking wine. Bright, ripe heirloom cherry tomatoes are added at the end for a burst of freshness and color. Click here to see It's Time for a Cherry Tomato Fiesta — 11 Great Recipes.

Baked Tomatoes with Parmesan and Oregano
This baked appetizer is easy and healthy — and for those with fancy plates or bowls, it can be really pretty, too. The fresh oregano is key in this recipe, so don’t be lazy and use the dried stuff. Feel free to swap in salted mozzarella for a more gooey filling. After you pop the tomatoes in the oven to bake, you will have plenty of time to tend to more complicated dishes or last-minute details. Click here to see 11 Easy Appetizer Recipes.

Fried Green Tomato Hornworms
What does a tomato hornworm taste like? Well, what would you taste like if you'd been stuffing yourself solely with tomato leaves for the better part of a month? Hornworms, which are ridiculously rich in chlorophyll, taste great with just about any summer vegetable, but my favorite recipe draws inspiration from the cuisine of the Whistle Stop Café, that fictitious Alabama diner made famous by novelist Fannie Flagg.

Tomato Tart
If, for some unfathomable reason, you haven’t yet made the Savory Pie Crust, let this tomato tart be the motivation to get into the kitchen and do so. This is a wonderful do-ahead dish, and, as it takes advantage of vine-ripened summer tomatoes, also happens to make for an easy warm-weather meal with a simple salad of mixed greens.
