Red sweet tomato is a very image of summer.

Tomato makes body cool down,  has various of vitamins, potassium and  phytochemical. In Thailand small ones are rather sweet for salad. I cook big fresh tomatos often.

They say in hot weather we need to eat cool down food. In the same time eat some heat up food for making balance. Tomato is for cool down. Chili is for heat up.

Make good balance in body and taste!
