20130720_145757-1One of the most loved seasons in our kitchen is when the garden starts providing us with fresh fruits and vegetables.

I’m always looking for new recipes for us to enjoy using our garden produce, and a few years ago I stumbled across this recipe that quickly became one of our favorite using fresh garden tomatoes. Although it could be made any time of year, we have found it just doesn’t quite taste the same using “store bought” tomatoes, so I keep it as one of our special treats during the gardening season.

The recipe is quick and easy to throw together, includes a variety of common ingredients which marry together well, and any leftovers just continue to marinate and get better every day.
