Heirloom Tomato & Basil Salad

I used to think that a tomato was a tomato, but the truth is different varieties can vary dramatically in taste and texture. I have become a big fan of heirloom tomatoes; they come in a myriad of colors, shapes, and sizes, and they always taste so fresh and delicious. They are a bit more expensive than regular tomatoes, but it's totally worth it.

I love combining tomatoes with basil; although it's more of a refreshing summer salad, I still like to make it year-round if I can find good basil.

Heirloom Tomato & Basil Salad


1 container mini heirloom tomatoes (I like grape tomato size)
6-8 basil leaves
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder

  1. Slice tomatoes in half, or if you are using larger tomatoes, into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Wash and rough-chop the basil.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil and spices. Add tomatoes and basil and stir to coat.
  4. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
The cost:
tomatoes: 3.29
basil: 1.99

Grand total: $5.28; serves 4-6
