Grape Tomato Salad

I love tomato salad – it reminds me of my dad’s tomato garden where he grows the sweetest grape tomatoes! They taste like candy!

Grape Tomato Salad

2 pints grape tomatoes, halved
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. chopped basil
1 finely chopped scallion
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. EVOO
Ground black pepper
1 English cucumber, diced
1/2 cup chopped parsley

Toss the tomatoes, 1/4 tsp. salt and sugar in a bowl, let stand for 30 minutes.

Transfer tomatoes to a colander above a bowl to catch liquids. To the bowl add the pepper, oregano, basil, scallions and vinegar. Whisk in oil and pepper, taste and season with salt.
Add cucumber, parsley, and dressing to the bowl with tomatoes, toss gently and serve.
