Spotlight Recipe: Marinated Sundried Tomatoes

Marinated Sundried Tomatoes
These nibblers are always a star on my holiday cheese platter. I pep up traditional sundried tomatoes with lemon, garlic, fresh oregano and olive oil. The tomatoes take a while to marinate, so make them the day before or first thing in the morning.

Marinated Sundried Tomatoes
Serves: 6

1 cup sundried tomatoes, halved
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 clove garlic, smashed
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Combine ingredients in a small bowl and stir gently. Marinate for at least 2 to 3 hours at room temperature before serving. Serve on a platter with your choice of cheese, olives and slices of a fresh baguette.

  1. Sounds great! Are the sundried tomatoes you use dry or in oil?

    Hi Diana – The sundried tomatoes are dry — the only oil you want are the 3 tablespoons mentioned in the recipe. Essentially you are making your own flavored oil to infuse the tomatoes. Hope you enjoy them!
