An amazing side dish with steak, chicken, fish or pork! Tofu would probably work too. If you add them to a salad you could skip the dressing because they are so delicious. Bruschetta would be perfect.
3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 small cloves garlic, minced (or 4 or 5)
½ teaspoon ground red pepper
1-2 pounds ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 small handful fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced (wait until you are ready to eat to slice)
Combine the oil, garlic and red pepper in small skillet over medium heat. Once the garlic sizzles (about 30 seconds), put it into a glass bowl, be sure to get all of it!
Add the tomatoes, vinegar and salt, gently stir well. Let it sit on the counter for up to 3 hours, but at least 15 minutes.
Right before eating, thinly slice the basil leaves and add it to the tomatoes.
Serves about 4
