Have you seen these?  They're a genetically engineered tomato from Europe that apparently can be eaten at different stages of ripeness.  I found them at my produce market last week and decided to try them even though they were sort of pricey. They weren't bad considering that you can't get a good tomato at this time of year. Brownish-red in color and not large, they do fill the void for winter. I used them in this spinach salad:

1 tsp dijon mustard
2 Tbl white wine vinegar
4 Tbl vegetable oil
3-4 Tbl sugar
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
Whisk all ingredients

For the salad:
Toss together about 5 cups baby spinach leaves with 1 cup sliced red onions, 1 cup crumbled blue cheese, and a few black olives.
