Basil Balsamic Vinaigrette for Tomatoes and More!

After my most recent move, my garden plants that I dug up and put into pots are not doing the best…except for my herbs, they are doing wonderful. So…I’ve been buying heirloom tomatoes at the Farmers Market.

I want to share the vinaigrette that I’ve been making to drizzle over the tomatoes (and bread).

Cast of characters are:
(note– measurements are approximate, as I change it up each time I make it)

1/2 Cup Olive Oil
6-8 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar
4-6 cloves of garlic…I lean towards the 6 🙂
1/3 Cup Fresh Basil
1 TBSP Fresh Oregano
2 grabs of Sea Salt or Kosher Salt (probably about 1 tsp or more)
Fresh ground Pepper (I use the 3 peppercorn blend…and some black/red pepper)…and lots of it! 🙂

I use my small chopper/blender….mince the garlic, add chopped up herbs, add salt and pepper, vinegar, then olive oil….blend like crazy.

Drizzle over sliced tomatoes or some very good bread!

It’s good over pork chops…rice…bread and cheese…the list goes on! ENJOY!
