  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. fine sea salt

Notes

Any tomato variety will do well with this recipe, but the smaller tomatoes such as cherry, grape, and yellow pear look especially pretty in a serving bowl.
You can add a few leaves of basil or spinach to this recipe for a pop of green. Just thinly slice the leaves chiffonade style to get pretty ribbons that taste as good as they look. Chives also look nice without overpowering the flavor of the vinegar.
