4 tablespoons The Olive Scene Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
¼ cup minced shallots (1-2 shallots)
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 pints cherry tomatoes
¼ cup roughly torn fresh basil leaves
In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, shallots, salt, and pepper and set aside.
Wash and slice the tomatoes in half and put in a serving bowl.
Add the dressing and toss to coat.
Cover the bowl with a plate and set aside at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours, to let the tomatoes marinate.
Just before serving, add the torn basil and toss.
Adjust seasoning to taste and serve at room temperature.
