Ingredients:

  • Tomatoes, halved – I used a variety of grape and heirloom.

Combined into a fairly large bowl (preferably one with a lid), add in your fresh herbs, salt and pepper. Then, lightly coat with olive oil.

Now, if you’re using a bowl that you can cover slap that cover on and give that baby a good shake it mix it all together!
