In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a gorgeous and luscious Marinated Basil-Tomato Salad. It is made of sliced tomatoes that have been marinated in a blend of oil and vinegar, fresh basil, onion, garlic, and seasonings. It is colorful, tasty, and healthy!
3 medium ripe tomatoes
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
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 
