Delicious Tomato Salad

1 quart of fresh chopped garden-tomatoes
3 Tbsp of minced fresh basil
2 tsp of balsamic vinegar
garlic powder or minced fresh garlic
onion powder or minced fresh onion

Toss it together and let it sit for a few hours or overnight for flavors to blend. Mmmmm.


  1. If you substitute the basil for twice that amount of fresh cilantro, change the onion to about 1/2 cup diced onion, and add a little olive oil to the mix when you toss it, you've got my "Wimpy Girl "Salsa" (Do Not Forget the Scare Quotes.)" recipe.

  2. That sounds about like Rachel's "salsa" which is actually pico de gaillo. (I'm sure I spelled that wrong. My excuse is that it's not English. So there.)

  3. Oh! Is that what pico de gallo (sp?) is?

    Well, I like it. A lot. I don't do hot peppers, really, not at all. So I like this alternative!

  4. Yes, but I don't put olive oil or vinegar in mine. Vinegar makes things taste not good.
