6 Roma tomatoes


Homemade Herb oil, recipe follows

12 bocconcini (bite size fresh mozzarella balls)

12 arugula leaves

12 sprigs rosemary

Homemade Herb Oil:

1 cup rosemary leaves, stems removed

2 cups olive oil

1/2 cup tarragon leaves

1/4 cup thyme leaves

  2. Cut the tomatoes in half and place them on a cookie sheet or pan. Sprinkle them lightly with salt and place them in the oven. Allow the tomatoes to dry in the oven about 8 hours or until they become shriveled and partially dehydrated. Remove them from the oven and drizzle them with herb oil.
