No-Cook Tomato Sauce
Mark Boughton Photography / Styling by Teresa Blackburn

Toss vine-ripe tomatoes with garlic, basil and olive oil, let them sit, and they get juicier and juicier. Toss with pasta, spoon over chicken or beef, or simply eat with a spoon.


6 large fresh tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, chopped
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Chop tomatoes and place in a bowl. Add garlic, olive oil, basil, salt and pepper. Toss gently. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature 2 to 4 hours
