I'm the same way. I don't like the taste of raw tomatoes, even when they're in something like a sandwich or a salad. But I love tomato sauce - the cooking eliminates whatever unpleasant taste there was in the raw ones.

And even my family, all of whom are avid tomato eaters, have to admit I've given raw tomatoes a fair try on several occasions. They're just not for me.
