8 Roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped 1/2 cup diced onion 3 cloves garlic, minced 8 basil leaves, chopped 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 3 tbsp balsalmic vinegar salt & pepper to taste
Chop up the tomatoes, place in bowl. Dice about 1/2 cup onion, place in bowl. Mince 3 large cloves garlic (or more or less to your taste), place in bowl. In a separate bowl, pour olive oil and vinegar. Take a fork and whisk, so as to blend the 2 ingredients together. Then pour into tomato bowl and stir. Cover bowl with plastic wrap (unless you want your fridge to smell like garlic) and place in fridge. Let sit for 30-60 minutes. When you are ready to serve, chop up the basil leaves, stir into the mixture, and add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with wheat toast squares, and thin slices fresh mozerella cheese, if you'd like. You can also eat plain.
