Juliets are often considered the perfect size and thick-skinned enough to be sliced in quarters for salads. This makes them perfectly bite-sized. They are sweet, so they are popular raw. They are meaty, which makes them a good choice for pastes and sauces as well. In fact, putting them into jars whole (remove stem, clean, then can) is popular as they are great for soups and salads in the winter as a preserved variety. They can also be sliced into relatively thick strips and dried.
