Author Notes: When it's tomato season there's nothing better, or easier, than using this simple method of freshly grating tomatoes. This is a traditional condiment used in Mediterranean cuisine and is delicious served alongside eggs, with a favorite toasted bread, or on pasta as salsa cruda.Lyna Vuong
