  • 3 large ripe tomatoes about 1 pound (453g)
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded basil
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove finely minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Slice tomatoes and combine in a bowl with all the ingredients.
  • Allow them to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, and up to 24 hours.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • Don’t waste ingredients on under-ripe tomatoes. This salad deserves juicy, red, vine-ripened tomatoes. 
  • Bigger tomatoes are easier to slice.
  • If you use dried herbs, use less than the recipe calls for as their flavor can be more potent.
  • The longer you let this salad marinate, the more flavorful it will be. 
  • Store – This tomato salad should be stored in the fridge. It will keep for about 3 days, so enjoy them the first day and then for 3 more days.  You can move it to the counter about 1 hour before serving if you prefer room temperature tomatoes.
  • There are 4 Blue Plan SmartPoints in one serving of this.
