Ingredients
  Ripe tomatoes 3 Medium
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  White wine vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped fresh basil 2 Tablespoon
  Finely chopped onion 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
Directions

Slice tomatoes into ½-inch slices, and arrange them in the bottom of a large shallow dish. Combine 1/3 cup olive oil, ½ cup white wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion, 1 clove minced garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper in a jar. Cover the jar tightly with a lid, and shake vigorously. Pour mixture over sliced tomatoes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 8 hours. Serve cold as a side dish. This is a beautiful dish, and it tastes great! It is wonderful for dieters and for vegetarians. I hope you like it! Tomorrow and the following day will be devoted to giving you a couple of ways to use pesto sauce (uploaded yesterday) in your entrees. Have a great day!!!--Betty
