Red (Κόκκινο)

The tomato season in our garden is over, but it isn't over in everyone's gardens yet. We have garden-grown fresh tomato available to us for at least six months a year. Red foods, including other garden favorites like red peppers, and a summer staple like watermelon, supposedly protect you from strokes., due to their lycopene presence. So go red and keep healthy.
The Cretan farmer's favorite snack for half the year: tomato salad and dakos rusks. Greenhouse tomatos are also available after the summer, but they never really taste the same as a summer-grown tomato.
