Marinated Tomatoes

tomatoesThe other night for dinner I finally had the opportunity to try out a new recipe I have been sitting on for a while. I still have bowls and bowls of my big burpee tomatoes and this was a great way to use up a ton of them. My herb garden was in need of some serious trimming so I used all the clippings from earlier that day in this recipe as well. These Marinated Tomatoes were an absolute knockout. I served it that night with large slices of crusty bread for dipping then used the leftovers a few nights later tossed with some pasta and both times the flavors were unbelievable.

Ingredients:

  • 2 T. Fresh Oregano (chopped)
  • 3 T. Fresh Basil (chopped)
  • 2 T. Fresh Rosemary (Chopped)
  • 1 T. Fresh Thyme (Chopped)
  • 1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
  • 3 Cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 2 t. Salt
  • 1 t. Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 C. Olive Oil
  • ½ C. Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 C. Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion (diced)
  • 6 Tomatoes (chopped)
