{No-Cook Tomato Sauce}

I have been a little behind on this blog, we are in the process of moving out of state. But I will update every chance I get :) I love all the freshness that summer brings. I just had to try this recipe and it was really good. It's very simple and you can kinda do what you want with it. I felt more on the healthy side after eating this :) You can toss this with pasta or spoon over chicken, or even just eat it out of the bowl.

6 large fresh tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 tsp kosher salt (I would keep adding and tasting till you get it the taste you want)
ground black pepper

Chop the tomatoes and place in a bowl. Add the garlic, olive oil, basil and salt and pepper. Toss gently. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours. The longer they sit the juicier they get.


  1. sounds delicious and very light!
    I'm definitely want to try it!
    Good luck with the moving!

  2. Codee! Where are you moving to? Good luck! that is a huge adventure.

  3. Hey Em! We are moving to Minneapolis for Scott to do is Masters. We're pretty excited! Should be fun times. :)
