Can you think of anything more summery than fresh tomato salad? We make caprese and bruschetta almost constantly…and when we run out of crusty bread and fresh mozzarella, we make this…

10 ripe Roma or heirloom tomatoes

2 large garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon onion powder

fresh basil, thyme and chives

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (we like unfiltered)

a splash of dry red or white wine

a splash of balsamic vinegar

coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Combine everything in a medium size mixing bowl.

Great as a light lunch or as an accompaniment to a leisurely dinner al fresco.

How are you using up those tomatoes?

Enjoy!

    Beautiful and so fresh. I think I might actually break into my very special fresh Italian olive oil from Tuscany to garnish these tomatoes. Yum! Take care, BAM
