These Trader Joe’s sun dried tomatoes in olive oil have a really nice flavor to them. The olive oil makes the sun dried tomatoes plump and juicy, and the tomatoes infuse the oil with a nice rich tomato flavor. This can add a ton of flavor to different dishes like salads, pastas and even on pizza. But the oil itself can also be added to recipes or mixed with pasta since it has such a nice tomato and oily flavor and texture. TJs has had a few different variations on sun dried tomatoes over the years, including a version without olive oil. I think the added olive oil makes these some of the juiciest sun dried tomatoes they’ve ever sold. This is the perfect TJs product to add to the back of your pantry because you never know when you’ll need it and it lasts for a long time unopened…..…….

Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
Trader Joe’s suggests you can put these on a pizza, but I can’t say that’s something I’ve tried yet. Has anyone made a pizza or something similar using these? I think my favorite use for these is either adding the infused oil to pasta, or putting the sun dried tomatoes themselves on a good Italian sandwich. I’ll put some Trader Joe’s prosciutto, capicola and salami on a hard roll or baguette and add some Italian dressing, all topped with these sun dried tomatoes. Let me know what your favorite recipe to use these sun dried tomatoes is, and if anyone has created unique and delicious concoctions from the infused olive oil! I always like to keep a jar of these tomatoes around, especially when I get bored with the same old sandwiches or pasta dishes. Give these items a try if you can’t make it to TJs…..
