That’s when I came up with this effortless recipe.It turns store bought tomatoes into something surprisingly delightful and tasty.marinated tomatoes in olive oil and red wine vinegar with herbs

It’s all due to the dressing (which includes my HOUSE SEASONING) that takes less than a couple of minutes to whisk up along with letting the tomatoes marinate at room temperature. I’ve put together the herbal flavors that I like best but please feel free to make this recipe your own and change it up.
