Tomato Salad

Our dinner tonight was kind of heavy, so the side dish needed to be the opposite. Yesterday at Costco, they had yellow cherry tomatoes. Paired with grape tomatoes on hand, I created a simple, colorful dish that tastes like summer. The fresh basil came from the mini herb garden that's growing in a pot on top of our grill. This will definitely become a go-to side for summer. Enjoy!

Tomato Salad
1/2 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
6 basil leaves, chopped
Salt and pepper

1. Combine tomatoes and garlic. Stir in olive oil and vinegar. Sprinkle with basil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
