Fresh Tomato Sauce

This could almost be considered a tomato salsa or bruschetta topping, but it's how I like to use up tomatoes that I brought in from the garden a few days ago that are getting to the almost too ripe state. You can toss this with some pasta, throw it on toasted bread or my favorite, simply eat it straight with a spoon.

Fresh Tomato Sauce

4 - 6 tomatoes (however many you're trying to use up)
1 clove crushed garlic
1/4 t salt
2 T olive oil
4 basil leaves

Roughly chop the tomatoes and place in a bowl with garlic, salt and olive oil. Place the basil leaves on top of one another and roll up. Slice rolled basil to form thin ribbons and add to the sauce. Mix everything together and enjoy!

Looks wonderful. That is one of my favorite tomato sauces to serve over the summer. It is simple and delicious.
