Today I was craving a salad but with a warm element.  So I made some confit tomatoes with vidalia onions.  Confit just means to cook something in oil, sounds fancy, right?  

You can make a big batch of these tomatoes and use them as a garnish, a side dish, a topping for meat or a grain (or like me, a salad).

First sauté an onion.  I used a vidalia onion but this is delicious with red onions, shallots, anything really. 

Then add a good amount of good quality olive oil… and throw your tomatoes in with a it of red pepper, salt and any herbs you like.

Cover them and let them cook from 8-10 minutes over medium-low heat.

Then just serve them over anything you like, I used some fresh spring greens. Added a bit of avocado and made a Harissa Yogurt dressing.
