I was like you for years. But sometime in my early 40's I decided that I'd give the ones my father-in-law was bringing us a real chance. And now I'll eat any in-season tomatoes no problem at all because they are freaking delicious. Either on a sandwich, or just with some salt, pepper, and olive oil drizzled on them. Bonus if you do some sliced soft mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, and balsamic vinegar. And of course they are great for any sauce or recipe. But they really shine when ate freshly sliced up and at room temp.
