What is better than summer salads with tomatoes and basil? (Well, perhaps a little mozzarella but we’ll save that for another day) I had seen this recipe in the June Food & Wine magazine but lost the actual recipe (probably in my stack of 400 recipes) so I just went with what I thought sounded good!
Using my salad dresser I combined 2 Tbsp. sliced basil, 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic, 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar and salt & pepper. Toss with grape tomatoes and let marinate 20-30 minutes before serving. Served with my mussel meal. Next on my tomato list is bruschetta!
