Scalloped Tomatoes with Corn
I most often serve tomatoes fresh from the garden and sliced as-is. Tomatoes here in Pennsylvania Dutch country aren't always of the home-canned variety left to sit on a shelf and gather dust until winter. One thing that is common here in Pennsylvania is scalloped tomatoes and corn. Just good stuff.
