Snackshot of the Day: Heirloom Tomatoes

Be sure to get to the farmers' market before they sell out of these popular items.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of heirloom tomatoes. Heirlooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes; you can find them in giant sizes (seen above) or in cherry tomato varieties. Pictured above are Limmony, Purple Cherokee, and Brandywine tomatoes, from top to bottom. Heirlooms ripen faster than regular tomatoes, so use them within a couple of days of purchase. They're soft and sweet, and make a great addition to salads, or simply on their own.
