Tomato Salad with Balsamic Vinegar

grape-tomato-salad-recipes on

I can't get enough tomatoes to eat when they're in the peak of their season.  Tomato salad recipes are just about my favorite way to enjoy this Summer fruit.  Yes, that's right, I said fruit.


  • 2 cups cherry-type tomatoes, washed and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • salt and fresh ground pepper

Toss the chopped tomatoes and onion in a medium bowl.  Add equal parts of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, enough coat the mix very well.  Season with salt and pepper.  Allow to marry for 30 minutes or so, before serving.  Serve at room temperature or chilled.
