Easy to put together, just give a few hours to marinate! Adapted from Fresh Greenmarket Cookbook by Carole Schneider. Cooking time is marinating time.

These are yummy. I added a clove of garlic and used less of the dressing (one tablespoon oil and two tablespoons lemon). The fresh basil is nice.


  1. Prick each tomato all over with a toothpick.
  2. Mix lemon juice and basil. Pour oil over mixture, whisking until liquids are completely blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Place tomatoes in a shallow glass dish and cover with lemon oil dressing. Chill for several hours, tossing occasionally. Enjoy!
