It Tastes Like Summer! Marinated Tomatoes With Basil

What goes better together than tomatoes and basil?  This super simple dish just says summertime, and is perfect to bring along to your next picnic/potluck, or to serve beside your next grilled dinner. 

You’ll need:

Tomatoes, Basil, Red Wine Vinegar, Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper

First, cut tomatoes in half, then in wedges, then in half again.

Place in serving dish.

Roughly chop basil (if you make this ahead of time, wait to cut and add the basil until the last possible minute, since it will darken on the edges after being cut and exposed to air).

Add basil to tomatoes.

Now, add salt and pepper, Olive Oil (I used Garlic Flavored Oil), and Red Wine Vinegar.  You want just enough oil and vinegar to coat the tomatoes, but you don’t want them to swim in it.

Now, toss the whole mix together and serve at room temperature.

This is one of those easy summer no-cook recipes I look forward to every year!
