Fresh Tomato Sauce

(Gluten-free)

Ingredients

  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, or 1-1/2 cups fresh chopped tomatoes, seeds and skin removed

  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil

  • 1 tbsp finely chopped red onion

  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic

  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Directions

If using fresh tomatoes, chop to desired size. If using canned tomatoes, drain juice. (Petite-cut diced tomatoes are the ideal size for making bruschetta.)

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use, or use immediately. To make a dipping sauce, put it in a blender and blend on high for about 10 seconds.
