Heirloom tomatoes are one of my favorite things to eat during the Summer time. Not only are they pretty, but they contain lycopene, which helps stimulate the immune system. If you want a more nutrient-dense salsa, you can grill the tomatoes, which will actually increase the amount of lycopene by up to 8 times the amount of raw tomatoes.
