You are most likely accustomed to a tomato and basil combination but this refreshing tomato and mint salad is a new twist on an old classic.

Technique tip: Try to purchase local tomatoes. Tomatoes that are shipped are usually picked green and ripened off the vine, producing fruit that has not properly or fully developed its flavor.

Ingredients

    • 2 pounds ripe tomatoes, cored and cut in 1-inch wedges
    • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
    • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, shredded
    • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon
    • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preparation

Put the tomatoes in a salad bowl with the onion and mint. Toss with the olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
