1 cup canola oil
1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
4 T. sugar
Freshly ground black pepper and salt, to taste
1/4 c. chopped parsley
18 whole basil leaves, cut fine
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds tomatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
Combine all ingredients except tomatoes in a large bowl. Whisk to combine, then add tomatoes. Use any kind of tomatoes; a multi-colored mix is especially nice. Allow to marinate for at least 4 hours.
Use tomatoes to make bruschetta, slice baguette and brush slices with olive oil. Grill on a skillet or grill pan until golden. Rub slices with garlic cloves. Top with tomatoes and shaved parmesan. Yummo!
