Marinated tomatoes are a game-changer. Add them to your favorite pasta salads and sandwiches, or serve them as a snack.
My husband is not a fan of tomatoes, so I usually only purchase a couple for myself on a regular grocery trip. However, this recipe reintroduced tomatoes to him and made him a believer! Both of us ate at least two pounds of these marinated tomatoes…
These tomatoes have a great texture and never turn out mushy like most other pickled tomatoes. Plus, they are skinless — which makes them even more enjoyable to eat right out of the jar!
Best Tomatoes to Use For This Recipe
Truth be told, you can use any firm tomato in this recipe. Typically, Romas work the best. Cherry tomatoes can work well too. Just remember that you will have to peel each tomato before you marinate them. Depending on how long you want to spend peeling, choose wisely!

Serving Marinated Tomatoes
Serve atop mashed potatoes or substitute marinated tomatoes for fresh in your next pasta salad. Or serve them over grilled tilapia for a refreshing pop of flavor. You could also add them to a Cuban sandwich for a hearty weekend lunch. Honestly, it’ll be impressive if they make it farther than straight out of the jar…
How Long Marinated Tomatoes Last
Marinated pickles don’t have the same shelf life as pickled tomatoes. This means they will stay fresh for up to two weeks when stored in your refrigerator. Keep them in airtight mason jars for the best results.
