Marinated Tomatoes With Lemon

Instead of the usual fresh basil, these tomatoes are made with fresh summer savory. If you cannot find fresh savory, fresh thyme works. Dried savory will work in a pinch (use 1/4 teaspoon).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut each tomato into 4 to 6 wedges.
  2. Place the tomato wedges in a medium bowl.
  3. Combine lemon juice and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk.
  4. Pour marinade over tomatoes; toss gently to coat. Let stand 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, serve wedges on a bed of greens.

This is fabulous! I love the flavor from the lemon! Different & refreshing. This was really nice on this crazy hot summer evening. It's hard to wait the full hour but well worth it! Made for ZWT9, Mike & the Appliance Killers. :)

I wish I had summer ripe, homegrown tomatoes for this dish. It was a light and tangy side. I will make it again this summer when I can get prettier tamatoes.
