  • Ingredients:
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 ounces sun dried tomatoes, julienned
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise (see notes)
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chiffonade of fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped

Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic and cook until soft but not browned, about 3 minutes. Add the sun dried tomatoes, sherry vinegar, salt, a few grinds of black pepper and oregano. Cook until the tomatoes are soft, about 2 minutes more.

Add the grape tomatoes and scallions. Continue cooking until the grape tomatoes are soft and slightly wrinkled, about 3 to 4 minutes. Mix in the basil and parsley and cook for 1 minute more. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature before serving.

Makes about 2 cups

Recipe Notes:
Plum tomatoes (about 5 medium) can easily be substituted for the grape tomatoes, just remove the seeds and chop them roughly.
