This is a quick and easy summer salad that is a great start to any grilled meal. The fresh tomatoes and basil really sing here, so get the best you can!

Tomato Basil Salad
Serves 4

1 pound fresh tomatoes, halved if grape or cherry, cut into bite sized chunks otherwise
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
kosher salt and black pepper

Stack up the basil leaves and roll them up into a skinny tube. Slice the tube crosswise to form shreds of basil. Place the tomatoes and basil in a bowl, pour the vineger over the top, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine and serve.
