Marinated Fresh Tomatoes
From Susie

 Marinated Fresh Tomatoes Recipe -- Heritage RecipesWhen I was a kid this was a favorite way my family enjoyed all those extra garden tomatoes grown, in a little garden plot, along the side of our garage. These marinated tomatoes are also great on a grilled hamburger or a salad!  (Editor’s Note – these would be homegrown Kansas Tomatoes, that always have the taste of sunshine!)



Marinated Fresh Tomatoes 

4 large  Fresh Tomatoes, peeled - if desired - however I don't bother.
1/4 c  Vegetable or Corn Oil

1 Tb  Lemon Juice (fresh squeezed or Minute Maid - found in the freezer section)

1 - 2  Garlic Cloves, minced

1/2 tsp. Salt

1/2 tsp. Oregano, crushed between the fingers to release more flavor

A few Fresh Basil leaves & Chives, chopped fine or a pinch or two, dried.


Slice tomatoes & arrange in a shallow container that can be tightly covered. Combine the oil & lemon juice then add the salt, minced garlic & herbs. Stir together till well blended.


Pour mixture over the tomatoes, cover & refrigerate till chilled & flavors are blended - overnight or all day works well.

 If the tomatoes are eaten up quickly, simply add more slices to the same herbed liquid & let them "marinate" before serving. But, only use the liquid over one time as the juice from the tomatoes tends to weaken it's flavor.

Serves 4-5
