Pickled Tomatoes With Jalapenos

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by crrllssn

This recipe is from Food and Wine. It's a side dish with immense flavor which goes well with simply grilled beef, pork or fish. Serve with crusty bread to sop up the ginger-cumin-scented tomato juices. The prep time does not include the pickling time.

This is a unique, interesting and good flavor. It would be an excellent side to a bland meal. Would be good over rice, on top of fish, chicken or pork. I had a ridiculous amount of sliced tomatoes left over from a fund raising event at church. You could also make it with chopped tomatoes. Next time 1/2 the oil and replace it with white vinegar.
