Marinated Tomato Salad
It’s hard to beat this salad, made from ripe, red tomatoes from your own garden!
(for 4 servings)
- 5 - 6 tomatoes
- 1 tsp sugar
- ¼ - ½ tsp salt
- black pepper to taste
- few drops Tabasco sauce
- 2 – 3 tsp wine vinegar
- 1 Tbsp chopped basil
- 1 – 2 Tbsp olive or canola oil (optional)
Slice, quarter or cube the tomatoes into a serving dish.
About 10 – 15 minutes before serving, sprinkle the remaining ingredients, in the order given, over the tomatoes. Toss lightly and leave to stand at room temperature.
Note: Replace basil with fresh coriander leaves or parsley.
