I can't get enough tomatoes to eat when they're in the peak of their season. Tomato salad recipes are just about my favorite way to enjoy this Summer fruit. Yes, that's right, I said fruit.
HERE'S ALL I DO
2 cups grape tomatoes, washed and roughly chopped
1/4 cup purple onion, finely chopped
salt and fresh ground pepper
Toss the chopped tomatoes and onion in a medium bowl. Add equal parts of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, enough coat the mix very well. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to marry for 30 minutes or so, before serving. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
