Deconstructed Tomato Salad

Hi! My name is Tara, and I watch too many cooking shows. Apparently not enough though, because I'm fairly certain that the title of this recipe is false advertisement. Really I created a tomato salad to go with dinner the other night, and in doing so, I realized that many of the ingredients I used where also what we used to make our delicious salsa... so hence the term "deconstructed" came into play.

Anyway, it's delicious and fresh, so you shouldn't care! It is also easy to make, so that is a plus as well.

So, this is super simple. You are going to grab these items:

- 2-3 plum tomatoes
(I like these because they are firm and hold up well when you dice them up. Also minimal tomato guts in these.)

- 1/2 large white onion

- 1-2 jalapenos
(cored or not cored, depending on your preference of heat, I left mine uncored because we like it hot.)

- 1/2 green bell pepper

- 1 garlic clove
(don't want it to be too garlic-y, so I left it at one)

- olive oil

- balsamic vinegar

- white wine vinegar

The directions are simple.

1) Roughly dice up all the vegetables, and put in a small mixing bowl.

2) Add a tablespoon of each: olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

3) Add a 1/2 a tablespoon of white wine vinegar.

4) Stir it all together; salt to taste; cover it up with plastic wrap, and put in the refrigerator.

5) Let it set for 30-60 minutes.
