This is a non-recipe kind of recipe. Let’s call it a very modern wife recipe– you know, easy and simple. So easy and simple you don’t really need a recipe. It’s tomato salad. Or marinated tomatoes. It’s a piece of cake. And I used the tomatoes and basil from my last post. Yup, I butchered them.

Slice up the tomatoes even if they’re cherry tomatoes so that the flavor can get in there. It’s okay to mix different kinds of tomatoes and cut them in different sizes. In fact, it’s encouraged. Go crazy!

Did I mention these are from my garden? I still can’t believe it. Throw those bad boys all together. The more colors the merrier! Then throw in some chopped basil, good olive oil and a splash of vinegar. Finish with fresh pepper and kosher salt. Who need’s mozzarella!?

This is also pretty amazing over a bed of lettuce (and even with mozzarella). See? No recipe needed! Try it out some time and let me know how it turns out.
