Celebrate the ripest tomatoes from your garden or market by serving them as simply as possible, enhancing taste only with a sprinkling of herbs and a drizzle of olive oil. This is the time to use your best quality Greek olive oil, as well.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • fresh ripe garden tomatoes
  • fresh finely chopped Greek oregano (or dried)
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper (optional)
  • extra virgin olive oil

Preparation:

Wash and dry tomatoes.

Slice in 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices and arrange on serving dish.

Sprinkle with Greek oregano, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Drizzle with your best quality olive oil and serve at room temperature.

Prefer chunks? Cut tomatoes into irregular chunks instead of slices.

Tough skins? Depending on the variety, how and where they were grown, and when they were picked, tomatoes can have tough skins that you may want to remove. Simply peel the tomatoes before using.
