1 1/2 t.garlic salt
1 1/2 t. seasoned salt
1/2 t. fresh ground pepper
3/4 t. dried thyme

1/2 c. red wine vinegar
2 to 3 green onions, chopped
4 to 6 large tomatoes, sliced or cut into wedges
  1. Combine all ingredients, except tomatoes, in a large measuring cup or mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk well.
  3. Place tomatoes in a resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over.  Marinate at room temp for up to 2 hours, turning the bag occasionally.

Here is another recipe for marinated tomatoes.  Our family has made it for years.  If you love garlic you will love this recipe.  Fabulous!

1/4 cup salad oil or a good olive oil
1 T. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 t. minced garlic
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. oregano
4 large tomatoes
  1. Slice tomatoes. I like to peel them by plunging them in to boiling water for 10 seconds and removing the skin but you don't have to do this.
  2. Whisk to combine all ingredients.
  3. Arrange in a shallow dish.
  4. Pour over tomatoes and chill 1 hour.
