- 1 cup tomotoes, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2-3 leaves fresh herbs, chopped
- (preferably fresh basil, but you can use dried “italian mix” seasoning)
- Splash of Vinegar (~1 tsp?)
- Splash of Olive Oil (~1 tbsp?)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Thin toasted bread
Dice tomatoes and place in a bowl.
Mince garlic, chop basil.
Drain any excess liquid / water from the tomatoes the add the garlic / basil.
Add salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, mix by had and let the mixture rest in the fridge.
Toast bread then serve mixture spooned on top.
Usually I’ll use fresh basil with a little dried oregano added for some extra flavor.
Be very careful to use only a little bit of vinegar if you are not used to cooking with it.
If you add too much salt, the mix will be overly salty and unpleasant.
Let the mixture rest before tasting (so flavors combine), and try a little bit immediately before serving.
If more salt is needed, you can easily sprinkle some over the prepared toast or add a little more to the mix.
