FINALLY! Tomatoes from the garden - nothing beats the flavor of fresh, homegrown tomatoes (except chocolate). I also have basil coming up like crazy, so the natural order of things points me to bruschetta for dinner. Sure, it's a great appetizer, but give me a bowl and I can down it without any evidence left behind. It's also a great side dish to Corn Flakes for breakfast.
Pure deliciousness! Notice my cute white ceramic knife in the picture? I LOVE this knife. It makes cutting veggies, fruit and anything else so easy - no juice squishing out.
about 1 1/2 c. chopped tomatoes
2 T. diced onion
1 - 2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. chopped fresh basil
2 T. olive oil
1/2 - 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients. Let sit for a bit for flavors to blend. Serve with toasted (with ooil) baguettes.
