A glut of tomatoes on hand. What could be easier, and made according to your own taste buds too.

The balsamic vinegar is what makes this. I did not marinate for this long as I live in the tropics where we have a good 15-20 degrees on most of the rest of the world. A bit of mozzarella and crusty bread rolls go well with this too.
