HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS OF TOMATOES
Though all tomatoes are certainly a low-calorie treat, not all tomatoes are created equal!
Campari tomatoes are grown and shipped on the vine so that they need no additional spraying or ripening chemicals to be applied before they reach your table!
They are typically slightly smaller and darker in color than a typical tomato and are also more disease-resistant.
Naturally ripened, Campari tomatoes will have to be used within a few days of purchase, since they will continue to ripen on the vine until taken off.
This recipe is a great way to get rid of some super ripe and delicious Campari tomatoes!
