Cherry Tomato Salad with Basil Recipe


To make this delicious Cherry Tomato Sale with Basil, use only fresh vine-ripened tomatoes either from your own garden or buy them at your local Farmer’s Market.  Forget those bland-tasting tomatoes from your super market.

I love tomato season and I can not seem to get enough of vine-ripened tomatoes.  My husband and I eat tomatoes in some form every night during this season.  I can not give you exact amounts for this recipe, as I just go into my garden and pick as many tomatoes as I need or want.  I then add onions, basil, and the seasonings to taste.  Be creative with this recipe.  So simple to make and so delicious!
