This is a rather simple recipe that will use up some of the tomatoes. It is also rather delightful to take along for a summer get together: a change from all the sweet things.
Depending on how many people you have in your party: I have only one other so I coarsely chop a few tomatoes along with a finely minced shallot or in my case a small white onion.
I don't have whole fresh garlic so I use a full teaspoon of store bought minced garlic that I mixed in with the tomatoes and the onion.
For the marinade, I whisk 1/2 cup of red wine vinegar with 3 tablespoons of canola oil (extra virgin oil, if you prefer). In addition, I use 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to taste. More or less to suit your taste.
Set aside for at least 2 hours.
Before serving, I add 1 cup finely chopped fresh sweet basil and 1/4 fresh cup parsley. Enjoy!

Continue to have a great summer!
