Marinated Tomato Slices with Fresh Basil

From Lynne Wilson


2 large ripe tomatoes (1 to 1½ lbs. total)
2 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
3 Tbsp. salad or olive oil
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
½ tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. freshly ground pepper
½ tsp. sugar


Slice the tomatoes into a deep dish or glass pie plate. Sprinkle the slices with the chopped basil. Mix the remaining ingredients with a wire whisk or fork. Pour this dressing over the tomatoes. Marinate for at least 1 hour at room temperature, spooning the dressing over the tomatoes occasionally. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
