When it comes to cooking, tomatoes are a major player. They show up in an extraordinary amount of instances, and this is because they’re incredibly versatile. You can mash ’em up, roast them, turn them into sauce or ketchup, chop ’em up for a salad, or delicately slice them for sandwiches. However, we’re here to now introduce a way to eat tomatoes that is shockingly underrated—mainly because of how simple it is. Have you have considered… just eating a tomato as it is?

Just Take a Bite

Now before you start talking about cherry tomatoes, that’s not what we’re talking about. Cherry tomatoes are common to pop in your mouth. We’re talking about large, fresh tomatoes that you normally chop up. But why is it that no one ever thinks to just take a bite as they would an apple or pear?

Don’t Mind The Mess

Perhaps one of the reasons people don’t eat tomatoes this way is because they’re very juicy, and can easily leak and make a mess. To this, we say quite bluntly: stop being a baby. You’re better than that. You can control the leak. Dip the tomato into some salt, take a bite, and don’t forget to thank us later.
