Killer Marinated Tomatoes

Killer Marinated Tomatoes by ButterYum

Oh my. Brought these babies to a gathering of church ladies and they were a huge hit. Really, reeeeeeally delicious. I'm having a hard time finding the words to properly describe how yummy they are, so you'll just have to make them and find out for yourself.
:)

Killer Marinated Tomatoes

6 large tomatoes, cut into wedges (or equal amount of halved cherry, grape, or pear tomatoes)
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3 scallions, sliced

Whisk everything but the tomato wedges together in a bowl. Add the tomatoes and stir to coat. Marinate at room temperature for at least 2 hours; stirring every now and then. Enjoy!

Notes: The marinade leftover in the bottom of the bowl is too yummy to throw away - sop it up with big chunks of yummy bread, or use it to make rice or quinoa.

  1. My grandma always had a bowl of these on her kitchen counter during the summer- and the marinade is for dunking the Italian bread in!

  2. Yep, This is a staple in any Italian kitchen... my nonna use to make these too in order to "use" the tomotoes she use to grow in the backyard.

    Always a hit.. and I have to agree with Allie and Pattie... with crusty Italian bread to dunk in... YUMILOUIS...

    With that say, I'm getting tomotoes on the way home from work today.

  8. We are overflowing with yummy tomatoes from the garden right now. The husband just marinated some for Saturday night's dinner. Not sure what he put in there, but I'm sure that yours would be wonderful. I will trade some tomatoes for herbs from my neighbor's garden and fix this tomorrow. I want to give it plenty of time to marinate.

    Thanks!

  24. I'm not a fan of raw tomatoes but once at a potluck someone brought some of these and said I had to try one. Well lo and behold I actually ate an entire serving! They were delicious. Which makes me think I could actually make and eat these too. MM!
