Default Where do you stand on the humble tomato?

Never really liked them on their own to be honest. Wouldn't ever have one in a salad or on a sandwich... urgh.

That said Tomato Puree is ubiquitous, I can eat sun dried in small doses and of course love a bit of Tommy K.

Disgusting pointless things. More often than not just used to fill a plate.

People who eat them like apples should be pepper sprayed

Can eat them in sauces, pulped up, ok with pizza obviously....

One of the only two things in the world I can't eat raw, them and olives....

Would remove from sandwiches, never add to my own salad.....

Can't get past the cold goo.....

Hovis soft white bread, Lurpak, freshly picked tomatoes, extra mature cheddar cheese - perfection.

fried up, they are the perfect companion for halloumi. it's all about finding them a suitable role.

Delicious, especially cherry tomatoes. The problem with shop bought ones is they just taste of water. Decent tomatoes are a thing of beauty.

Can’t have them on their own.

Lovely sliced and grilled on toast with cheese.
Bruschetta- tomatoes Diced and Mixed with olive oil, garlic, basil and a smudge of white wine vinegar on some grilled Italian bread is super

Fried in butter with onion - class

Growing my own at the minute, hoping they’re a lot nicer than the store bought ones.

You literally just listed three dishes where they are imo, on their own....

cherry, regular or beef all work. cut in chunks about the size of half a cherry (all goes a bit mushy anyway). fried in olive oil. halloumi and tomato go together like two things that really go together.

On that basis, I’m not sure you understand the concept of ‘on their own’.

grilling is fine, but I would just fry the halloumi in the same pan as the tomatoes, in slices 1cm thick max. add the tomatoes when the cheese is starting to go brown.

I like the idea of the landing craft, but it's going to look like it was hit by a shell already.
