Ingredients

  • 1½ to 2 pounds Heirloom Tomatoes {of different color and variety}
  • 1 bunch Green Onions, Sliced
  • 1 Clove of Garlic, minced
  • Kosher Salt
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 pinch of dried Oregano, ground in your palm
  • Fresh Cracked Black Pepper, to taste

Directions

Wash and remove stems. Slice tomatoes into halves, quarters or eighths depending on the size of the tomato and toss into a colander set over a large bowl. Generously sprinkle kosher salt over tomatoes, gently toss and let sit for 20 minutes. The salt not only removes some extra water from the tomatoes, but seasons them too.

In another bowl combine the sliced green onions and garlic. In a measuring cup combine the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and oregano. Whisk until combined and pour over salted tomatoes. Toss, season with fresh cracked black pepper and serve!
