Incredible salsa

This salsa is incredible. I found it on the Weight Watchers site. Try it on a baked potato or on a chicken breast. Only 1 point per 1/2 cup, although I had a whole cup. Absolutely delicious!

Fresh Tomato Salsa Crudo
Makes 8 servings
POINTS: 1 per ½ cup serving
Ingredients
3 1/2 cups chopped cherry tomatoes (about 2 pounds)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup minced flat-leaf parsley leaves (I didn't have this)
1/4 cup minced basil leaves
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp coarsely chopped fresh thyme (Didn't have this, either)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp crushed red chili pepper flakes
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
Combine all the ingredients in a large stainless steel or glass bowl. Let the sauce sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving.

It is good, Jean. I had it as dressing on my salad for lunch today. Very satisfying.
