Simple Tomato Relish

This relish features roasted tomatoes, onion and garlic and is divine when spread over toasted bread.
  • 1 pint red grape tomatoes
  • 1 pint yellow grape tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion -- cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 12 cloves garlic -- peeled
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano, basil, or marjoram leaves

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line two shallow roasting pans with parchment paper or foil. Arrange the tomatoes in one pan and the onion and garlic in the other. Drizzle both with the oil and vinegar, season with the salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Roast until the tomatoes split and the onion and garlic have softened, about 25 minutes. Transfer the tomatoes, onion, garlic, and some of the juices to a bowl. Adjust seasoning, if desired. Add the herb and toss. Let cool. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Serve cold or at room temperature.
