Lavon and Miss NiNi talk about Tomatoes.
NO COOK TOMATO SAUCE
- 6 large fresh tomatoes
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil or 2 tablespoons dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- Coarsely ground black pepper to taste
- Other herbs or spices you wish
Finely chop tomatoes into a bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Toss gently.
Cover; let stand at room temperature up to 2 hours.
Refrigerate leftovers for several days or freeze.
Note: this makes a big batch. I often use this as a guide with fewer tomatoes.
Slice a loaf of French or similar type bread into 1/2” slices.
Brush lightly with olive oil or butter.
Grill, toast or bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes until lightly brown.
Note: I used my grill/Panini press.
Heat enough tomato sauce to top bread slice.
Add shredded mozzarella cheese.
May add chopped olives, onions, peppers etc..
