Fresh Garden Tomatoes...Slightly Warm?

I have quite a lot of "beautiful" fresh garden tomatoes. http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e10...

There are many ways to use garden-fresh tomatoes in salads, etc.
A favorite recipe of mine utilizes fresh garden tomatoes in a pasta, which just *warms* them via the hot pasta, but does not actually cook them.
Does anyone have other ideas of how to use fresh garden tomatoes just "slightly warm", but not cooked?

When I have wonderful garden-fresh tomatoes I prefer not to warm them any more than the sun does.
My favorite: go out to the garden at noon with a salt shaker, Pick a tomato, take a small bite, sprinkle it with salt and take another bite. Continue until it's gone.
A fresh tomato sandwich on white bread with mayonnaise is also a wonderful thing. Gazpacho is good, too.
Never put a tomato in the refrigerator.
