Need to use up those tomatoes?

Everyone is harvesting their gardens for the last time before it freezes and I have a great way to use up the tomatoes and basil if you have them 🙂


I made this really quick last week for us to snack on before football practice knowing we would be eating dinner late. It was super quick, super easy and super delicious!

1/4 cup diced red onions
4 diced roma tomatoes (or whatever kind you have)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
8-10 basil leaves chopped
salt and pepper to taste

I mixed all of that together in a bowl in the morning and covered in the fridge so the tomatoes could absorb all the flavors.

Right before football I sliced my baguette and spread with butter. Put them in the oven at 400 degrees for a few minutes. Topped with a spoonful of tomato mixture and a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese…..AMAZING!

My family loved it so much that I have this in the fridge right now ready to prepare before football tonight!
