Trader Joe's California Sun-dried Tomatoes--a Convenient Alternative

I love sun-dried tomatoes! I love the flavor and that they are easy to add to a ton of my recipes. The one thing that I did not like, however, was that many of the ones that I found were packed in oil. This left them feeling slimy and I honestly don't like someone dictating how much oil I have in my food if I can help it.

Sometime last year, I discovered Trader's Joe's California Sun-dried Tomatoes and we haven't parted ways since. They are not packed in oil, which is great. They also come in a resealable bag, so I can use a little here and a little there. They have a great flavor. The sun-dried tomatoes are Julienne cut, so if you are looking for bigger pieces, you will not find them here.

Since these sun-dried tomatoes are not already packed in oil, I just add a little when necessary. These sun-dried tomatoes have worked really well in all of the recipes that I have used them in so far.
