Our wonderful neighbors brought us a bunch of farm fresh tomatoes that I decided were the perfect amount for a tomato salad. Since I also had a bunch of cilantro I wanted to use that up too. The marinated salad was super juicy and tangy. It was delicious sopped up with a fresh roll. Now that it's almost summer time and tomato time I know I'll be making this salad again!
Marinated Tomato and Cilantro Salad
An Ashley's Cooking Adventures Original
6 medium sized tomatoes, sliced into fourths
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic salt, and pepper. Place tomatoes, cilantro, and onion in a medium sized resealable container.
Pour the marinade over the tomatoes and seal the container.
Shake to coat and and leave at room temperature for at least two hours. Serve over cous cous, with crusty bread, or a fresh roll.
