The Mother of All Tomato Salads

There is nothing fresher, easier, or yummier than a tomato salad. If this baby takes you more than three minutes to put together, well, I will be stunned. And with olive oil in the dressing, your body absorbs the precious lycopene 60 percent% better than without it.
Makes 4–5 servings

2 containers cherry or grape tomatoes, rinsed and dried
¼ cup extra- virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Generous pinch dried oregano
1 small red chili pepper, seeded, finely minced
1 clove fresh garlic, very finely minced
Sea salt
Cracked black pepper

Place the tomatoes in a mixing bowl. Whisk together oil, vinegar, oregano, chili, and garlic with salt and pepper to taste. Toss dressing with tomatoes to coat and serve at room temperature or chilled.
