Killer Marinated Tomatoes

The next time you have a a bunch of tomatoes on hand, puhhlease try these Killer Marinated Tomatoes from Butter Yum. They are so amazing! I served them on cous cous but they would be great as a side. Butter Yum also recommends having some good bread on hand to soak up the yummy marinade. I didn't have any good crusty bread, but did have some plain ol sandwich bread and let me tell you, this marinate is so incredible that it doesn't matter what kind of bread you have! It's that good. I am sad that tomato season is just about over because I don't want to wait til next summer to eat these killer tomatoes again.

6 large tomatoes, cut into wedges (or equal amount of halved cherry, grape, or pear tomatoes)
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3 scallions, sliced (I used a small red onion)
Whisk everything but the tomato wedges together in a bowl. Add the tomatoes and stir to coat. Marinate at room temperature for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. 


  1. Hi Ashley! I love your post. I forgot to mention in my post that this is a fabulous way to improve the flavor of not so great "out of season" tomatoes. So there's no need to wait until next summer to make this dish again. Hooray!!

    I love that you've served them over couscous. I have used the leftover marinade to make quinoa, which was excellent. Yummy stuff... so glad you liked it!


  2. Oh this might be my supper tonight. I've got loads of tomatoes and fresh herbs!

  3. I just used up all of my tomatoes from the farmers market last weekend, but I will have to get more this weekend and try it out. This looks so good!
