Crimson™ Tomato Salad
Our Crimson tomato salad makes a great summer salad with fresh ingredients and in-season berries, but can also play a role in your holiday side dish game! Our Crimson tomatoes are proprietary varieties made to grow fresh and beautifully in the winter season, making them our most popular FL tomato. They are grown to be disease resistant and attracted to the sunshine, while also ripening red right through, giving them extra lycopene antioxidants and other enriching vitamins and nutrients.
We love using our Crimsons as an ingredient in sandwiches, soups, or tacos, but this Crimson salad really lets the ripened tomato shine as the star of the show. The juiciness from the thick slices and sweetness from the blackberries pair really well with the bitterness from the arugula and onion, and the saltiness from the feta crumbles. It’s a super simple salad but full of bursting flavors you can enjoy any time of year!
