Ingredients

  • 2 pounds heirloom tomatoes of different color and variety
  • 1 bunch green onions sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pinch dried oregano ground in your palm
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • 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!
