Made from garden-ripe tomatoes, no cooking required. "Raw sauce" combines garden fresh tomatoes and seasonings in a blender

Ingredients

4 large red-ripe tomatoes

2 small fresh garlic cloves, peeled

½ teaspoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 

¼ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

1

Remove skins from the tomatoes:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil – half way filled.
Cut the blossom end of the tomato out with a sharp knife (the top, little round of the tomato.)
Cut an “X” on the bottom of each (this will help release the skins.)

2

Add the tomatoes carefully, and cover the pot. In one minute, take a peek – the skins will be loosening from the tomato.
When wrinkled and loosened, remove them to a colander in the sink with tongs, one at a time. Cool.
Skin the tomatoes and discard skins. Cut the tomatoes in half and squeeze to remove the and seeds and juice – do this in a mesh colander over a bowl to fit.
Keep squeezing until the tomatoes are almost dry – no juice.
(Use the juice for another recipe – as broth for rice, or gazpacho.)

3

To finish raw sauce:
Place the tomatoes in a blender with the remaining ingredients and plus until a slightly smooth sauce – with a little texture.
A nice touch is to add some sliced cooked garlic cloves to the blender (see recipe “Grilled Pizza with Tomato Raw Sauce.”)
Place in a bowl. Use some for this recipe, use extra for another recipe.
