Seeding a Tomato

Do you have recipes that call for tomato, diced and seeded? The method I've always heard is to cut the tomato in half and squeeze out the seeds, but I feel like that compromises the integrity of the leftover flesh.

My solution? I cut the tomato in half crosswise and scoop out the seeds with a grapefruit spoon (a spoon with a serrated tip.) The flesh that is left is still firm and easy to dice. No more squishy tomatoes!

we most certainly do not want squishy tomatoes;).

I like your idea; I use my fingers to push out the seeds and then give the tomato a big ole shake over the sink:).

LOVE the details!
