READY IN: 10mins




  • Mix all ingredients together and set on counter stirring occasionally.
  • The salt will bring out the juice of the tomatoes.
  • Taste and add more seasonings to your personal taste.
  • You can use fresh basil or oregano if preferred, just remember to chopped finely and use a little less than dried.
  • USES: Serve with almost any meal as a side.
  • On top of a green salad (no dressing necessary!).
  • Use as a topping for bruschetta--just chop tomatoes instead of slicing.
  • Use for caprese salad--add sliced buffalo mozzarella and you're done.
  • have some leftover juice: place some sliced chicken breasts and marinate over night, then carefully remove the chicken and quickly sauté them until done. Add remaining juice and tomatoes, boil for 1-2 minutes and then add cooked penne pasta, toss, and simmer for 5-6 minutes.
  • JUICE USES: **you can reuse the "marinade" with new tomatoes. Just add some more sliced tomatoes to the juice and let sit for about 20 minutes.
  • OR use the juice and marinate boneless chicken breast overnight in refrigerator, grill and serve or slice chicken and top a Caesar salad with it.
