Tomato and Basil Salad
ripe fragrant tomatoes (using Roma tomatoes I use about 9 or 10 for my large family)
1 bulb garlic
1 large bunch basil
good quality olive oil
lots of salt and pepper
Slice or dice tomatoes, this can be as rough or nice as you like. Finely chop garlic. Shred or tear basil up. Combine all in a large bowl. Mix with enough olive oil to coat. Add PLENTY of salt and pepper (to taste, but the salt helps to marinate). Mix together and let it rest for another 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
VARIATIONS--> add chopped olives, parsley, oregano, diced red onions and a splash of red wine vinegar for a delicious salsa for any use!
Make some Bruschetta toast and spread some avocado on top and then add leftover salad for a quick snack or meal Very versatile!
