If you love tomatoes, chances are good you had to the discussion of why some people keep tomatoes at room temperature on the kitchen counter, while other store there is in the fridge. Some is just preference, some people just prefer to have cold tomatoes, especially if eating them in a salad or something. But when it comes to flavor and tomatoes lasted longer, which way is best?
Tomatoes should actually be stored at room temperature. Once you start storing tomatoes in the fridge, they began to lose flavor. The cold prevents the tomatoes from continuing to ripen, and they will be less tasty when you need them.
If you love cold tomatoes for salad or perhaps some appetizer you are making, pop them into the fridge couple hours before you start to make your salad.
