Sometimes, tomatoes don’t have much pizazz, particularly in the winter months. If your tomatoes are lacking in flavor, a little extra lemon juice, dried basil and pinch of unrefined salt will give your dish an additional boost of flavor.
Optional: For a little more heft, stir in a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil before serving.
