Nothing goes better in the summer than fresh, home-grown tomatoes and basil. It’s one of our favorite combinations. I first had something similar to this in California many years ago and it has become a family favorite. 
 
In a large bowl mix the following:
 
3 medium-large tomatoes, chopped (I used an assortment of cherry tomatoes)
3/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4-1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (to your taste)
