Tomato and Basil Salad

This is easy! This is quick! This is excellent! I recently took this salad to a potluck: It disappeared very quickly

Tomato and Basil Salad:

8 medium tomatoes, ripe and quartered
24 pitted, whole black olives, drained and blotted dry
1/4 c. fresh basil, chopped (see Note)
2-to-3 tsp. granulated sugar
At least 1-1/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper, or to taste
Extra virgin olive oil, as needed
Feta cheese crumbles, as needed

About 30 min. before serving, combine tomatoes, olives, basil, sugar, and pepper, tossing gently. Cover lightly and let stand at room temperature until ready to serve. Sprinkle with olive oil; add feta. Serves 8.

Note: Measurement should be slightly compacted.

Combine fresh tomatoes, basil, olives, sugar, pepper ... 

Ready in minutes ... Your finished salad!
