    Ever-popular and tastiest in summer months, tomatoes supply fiber, thiamin, vitamin B6, and lots of vitamin C. You'll find that tomatoes are much easier to peel (as called for in some recipes) if you cook them first. Simply place the tomatoes in a pot of boiling water—just until you see the skins tear—then dunk them immediately into an ice bath. The peel should separate easily from the tomato.
