Heirloom Tomatoes

Prep: 7 minutes

Serves:4

By Tiffany Hobson

Ingredients

  • 3 heirloom tomatoes, washed and sliced
  • 1-3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 bunch fresh basil leaves, rinsed and left whole
  • pinch sea salt
  • a few twists ground black pepper, optional

Directions

Place 6-9 slices of Heirloom tomatoes on a plate. Add 3-6 fresh basil leaves on top of the tomatoes. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar over the tomatoes and basil. Depending on how many tomatoes you use, you may need a bit more balsamic vinegar. The tomatoes should not be drenched with balsamic vinegar, only a light coat is needed to enhance the flavor. Add a pinch of sea salt over the tomatoes. A few twists of ground black pepper may be added to this dish, but is not needed.

Note: This is also nice to place on top of some greens and enjoy as an easy salad. Sometimes I do this and place it in a wrap when I need a quick lunch on the go. You may opt to omit the basil if you do this.
