Marinated tomatoes are great served as a side dish, especially for a BBQ – the perfect balance of sweet and savory creates an irresistible flavor combination and is completely different from any other tomato salad recipe I’ve ever tried. So what is the trick? A secret ingredient, pickle relish, which gives it its’ addictive zest. Ripe, sweet, beefsteak tomatoes in a vinaigrette mixture, seasoned to perfection! As a light appetizer or a side dish to for steak, grilled chicken or oven-roasted fish, these refreshing marinated tomatoes are the ideal solution. A summery, 8-ingredient course that can be prepped in just 10 minutes. Tip: the longer this tomato salad recipe marinates, the better the flavor!
