A little bonus recipe this week for WNBF's Foodie Friday Fans who probably still have lots of tomatoes to use up from last summer:

Tomato, Onion Salad (or relish, if you like) Prep. time 10 minutes, 2-4 servings

3 medium tomatoes, cored & diced

1/2 small to medium onion (red or yellow)

2 T. fresh basil, diced

1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes

2 T. olive oil

1 T. balsamic vinegar

2 cloves garlic, dice

salt and cracked black pepper.

Just lightly toss all ingredients together and chill.  The flavor improves over a few hours or overnight.  Can be served as a side salad with sliced mozzarella cheese or can be spooned over chicken or pork chops or even as a hot dog topping.
