  • 5 cups vine-ripened tomatoes, both red and yellow, diced
  • 10 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (a handful) flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar (eyeball it)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

PREPARATION

In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, basil, parsley and some salt and pepper,. In another small bowl, combine the red wine vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. While whisking, drizzle in the EVOO in a slow and steady stream. Pour the vinaigrette over the tomato mixture, mix to combine and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
