Oregano-Marinated Tomato Salad
This is the perfect summer salad. Full of fresh flavours, and of course, the rich and smooth texture of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Marinating the tomatoes in salt, pepper, olive oil and oregano intensifies their flavour and extracts their rich juices. Incredibly simple. Equally delicious.
3 lb. mixed heirloom tomatoes (preferably various colors and sizes), cut into wedges or halved if small
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin Skapeti olive oil
2 Tbsp. oregano leaves (from about 4 sprigs)
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Toss tomatoes, oil, oregano, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Let sit, tossing occasionally, until juicy and deeply flavoured, at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour. Perfect with crusty bread to mop up the delicious juices.
