Tomatoes. Yeah. I know. We’ve talked about this already. I have a lot of them. You see them featured every other day on my blog. Deal with it. I just processed the last huge batch (a blog post on that coming soon!) so I promise to let up soon. Then we’ll move onto winter squash. If you thought I posted a lot of tomato recipes, wait until you hear about the pumpkin and butternut squash! :)

This is a pretty basic recipe, and when you want the flavor of your heirloom tomatoes to shine, basic is exactly the type of recipe you want. :) It would make a great side dish or appetizer at a party. It’s pretty, it’s easy to eat, and it’s delicious!

tomatoes with balsamic reduction sauce

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 4-5 servings

Ingredients

3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
3-4 heirloom tomatoes of varying sizes and colors
sea salt and pepper for sprinkling
10 basil leaves, pinched together and sliced to form small ribbons

Instructions

  1. In a small sautee pan, combine the vinegar and sugar over medium heat and cook for 1 minute, or until the mixture is almost reduced by half and is thick and syrupy. Remove from the heat, whisk in the olive oil, and let rest until cool.
  2. Core the tomatoes and slice into 1/4" rounds. Scatter on a plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the tomatoes with the balsamic reduction. Top with basil ribbons and serve immediately.

    This sounds so good. Rick makes balsamic reduction from time to time – yummm. It’s great on steak too.

    Ahhh YES thank you! I have one million tomatoes but I am kind of over tomatoes right now. I needed to be inspired. And you did it!

    I love how simple and perfect this is. Great tomatoes really don’t need much else.
