Rainbow Tomato Salad Recipe

½ small red onion, very finely chopped
2 small cloves garlic, very finely chopped
Balsamic vinegar, your good stuff
Extra virgin olive oil, again, your good stuff
Salt and pepper
Enough mixed tomatoes to fill your serving plate when sliced
Basil leaves

– Slice the tomatoes (about 1/2 cm thick) and arrange on a serving plate.
– Scatter over the red onion and garlic and drizzle with the balsamic and olive oil.

– Season and garnish with torn basil leaves.

This improves after marinating for a few hours. It makes an awesome addition to a BLT (bacon, lettuce and tomato) sandwich, which is a personal favourite and speciality of mine. I have spent more time than is reasonable refining this sandwich and I am making a note to self now to post about it.

Thanks to Helen at Eat my Words for this recipe. I’m helping out at a party tomorrow, and will take this one along….

    This is my latest find…

    Any *good* balsamic vinegar will do. Don’t scrimp on the quality!
