Ingredients

  • 1 pint green cherry tomatoes, chopped roughly
  • 2 pinches of salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 Cup whole garlic cloves
  • 1/2 Cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3-4 basil leaves
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

Season the tomatoes with the salt and place in a colander or cheesecloth to drip for about an hour.

Season with additional salt and lemon juice, to taste.
