Simple Supper Tomatoes

Serves 4-6

At Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House in Lynchburg, Tennessee, dinner, the main meal of the day, was always served at noon. Supper was a lighter evening meal. Both made abundant use of vegetables grown in the boarding house garden.


  • Ripe Tomatoes 6 large, sliced
  • Green Onions 1 bunch, sliced, including some green tops
  • Parsley 2 Tbs, minced
  • Basil 2 Tbs, minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil ¾ cup
  • Apple Cider Vinegar ¼ cup
  • Garlic 1 small clove, minced
  • Sugar 1 tsp
  • Salt 1 tsp
  • Worcestershire Sauce 1 tsp

Cook It

  1. In a large salad bowl layer the tomatoes and onions. Sprinkle with parsley, basil, salt and pepper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine the oil, vinegar, garlic, sugar, salt and Worcestershire sauce with a wire whisk or electric mixer.
  3. Spoon the oil mixture over the tomato slices. Cover and chill until suppertime.
