Tomatoes and basil combined together provide a flavour explosion. This is one of my favourite recipes that I have been making for years and ate a lot of when I was in Italy. It is the perfect summer recipe.
3 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Pinch of sea salt
Black pepper to taste
Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl and let sit for 15 minutes before serving. The longer it sits, the better the flavour.
