3 Ripe Tomatoes (or 2 massive tomatoes)
Sm handful of basil
2 cloves of garlic (finely diced)
salt and pepper
red wine vinegar
Plan of Attack
Core and Chop the tomatoes into bite sized pieces. Put in the serving bowl.
Dice the basil and add to serving bowl
Crush or finely dice the garlic cloves. Put in the Serving Bowl.
Add 2-3 tbls of red wine vinegar to the serving bowl, salt and pepper (to taste- which I didn't but I am recommending to people who are interested in eating the salad they taste as they season). You might be inclined to add more red vinegar, and this is totally your prerogative!
Mix everything together and refrigerate for an hour. Serve cold.
My comments: I don't eat raw tomatoes, but I know many of my gente like em, I made this salad for a recent dinner party. I got rave reviews and I think the key, at least I am told from people who eat tomatoes raw, is to get them at the perfect amount of ripeness...Which apparently I did. Yay!
