"What a great way to use up some home-grown tomatoes. My family loves this served with their B-B-Q. If you are having difficulty find the Spanish sherry vinegar, you can use balsamic vinegar."

Perfect! Good quality tomatoes, a simple drizzle of olive oil, sherry vinegar, and finished with fresh basil just makes one's heart content. We loved it! This summer while tomatoes are at their best, this will be made again and again. Thanks so much, Tis, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.
