This makes a flavorful Tomato Vinaigrette for adding to all types of salads, but it really shines in our Spaghetti with Marinated Tomatoes and Mozzarella recipe. The tomatoes will need to sit for about an hour and 45 minutes before serving. This gives just enough time to allow all those delicious flavors to meld together expertly. Once the tomatoes are ready, simply toss them with cooked thin spaghetti and small mozzarella balls. Dinner is as simple as that. Consider our Mouthwatering Marinated Tomatoes your quickest way to mealtime bliss.
