This makes a rather nice side dish for your table. You may also use these to cook with and add flavor to your meats or chicken. I have placed chicken in a glass baking disk and covered with tomatoes cooked in the oven for 45 minutes. This add flavor to the chicken and not need to add other seasonings or spices.

  • 6 ripe tomatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme or marjoram, crushed
  • 1/4 cup finely snipped parsley
  • 1/4 cup snipped chives
  • 2/3 cups olive oil
  • 1/4 cup taragon vinegar

Place tomatoes in bowl; sprinkle with seasonings and herbs.  Combine oil and vinegar; pour over.  Cover; chill 3 hours, spooning dressing over a few times.  Drain off dressing and serve tomatoes
