  • 1 pound tomatoes
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • kosher or sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper


  1. Chop each of the vegetables into small, bite-sized pieces. I like to cut roughly 1/2-inch cubes.

  2. Mix the vegetables together in a medium-large bowl. Add the sugar, wine vinegar, salt and pepper and mix again. Refrigerate for at least one hour to give the tomatoes time to marinate and let their juices mix in with the vinegar.
