The unique coloring and sweet flavor of the pineapple tomato makes it perfect for raw preparations. Use them in green salads, layered in a stacked salad or paired with fresh basil, mozzarella and balsamic for a traditional caprese salad. Chop and combine with fresh herbs and olive oil and serve atop grilled bread. Its large size makes it a perfect sandwich tomato. It also looks beautiful when layered in a tart or sliced and served on pizzas and flat bread. Heirloom tomatoes are fragile, bruise easily, and should be used as soon as possible upon ripening. For maximum flavor do not refrigerate.
