HOW TO: Make Seasoned Diced Tomatoes

Diced tomatoes are extremely useful and can be found in a large variety of dishes/recipes. Several restaurants use them on pizzas topped with fresh sliced basil and shredded mozzarella. It makes a great meal and is one of my favorite pizzas to make. In addition you can use them in salads, saut├ęs, sauces, and whatever your imagination brings.

They are easy to make and you will never want to buy canned again. You just need a few things to get started.

2-3 large ripe tomatoes
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh basil
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

To begin, diced your tomatoes down into 1/4" pieces.

Place them in a mixing bowl.

 Add in olive oil, salt, and pepper. 

Stir to fully coat. Add in minced garlic and basil.

Stir to fully incorporate. Use and enjoy!
