Seasoned Tomatoes

I'm short on fresh vegetables on the house so I tried to figure out what to do with a tomato so I could serve a vegetable for dinner.  This was delicious...and a nice change from all the greens we usually eat!

This is a great change for a vegetable to serve with a meal...or as a pretty appetizer to serve.

This recipe is per large slicing tomato...but you can adjust to more/less per your liking.

1 large slicing tomato, sliced into round pieces...make them pretty, and thin!
1/8 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp thyme
pinch of black pepper

1/4 cup of mozzerella or parmesan cheese...pick your fave :)

Mix together spices and olive oil and spread over tomato slices. Top with your favorite cheese.  Refrigerate for a half hour to two hours before serving to allow flavors to blend.
