Marinated Tomatoes

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by MizzNezz

Basil is a great flavor enhancer for tomatoes. This is a lovely side dish.

Top Review by Lizzie-Babette

The mix of ingredients really highlights fresh tomato flavor. Getting the sugar dissolved was a bit challenging, but it was great - it toned down the sometimes too-acidic bite of the tomatoes. We did add a tiny bit of salt, but only once the tomatoes were on the plates, rather than add it to the marinade. We normally dress tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, basil, and sometimes fresh mozzarella, but this was an excellent change of pace. We had it with grilled steaks for a simple, summery supper. Very nice recipe.
