- 3 large tomatoes
- 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
core and chop your tomatoes and place in a bowl. add in the minced garlic and dried basil, and then drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top. gently toss and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. some notes: i rarely eat onions, so i excluded and went for a straight forward tomato flavor. also, you can sub in fresh basil, but i didn't have any on hand, so i just used dried. letting it sit overnight really made the difference in flavor.
