Gather ingredients, forgot to include basil in this pic. Sorry basil
Smash a piece of garlic with a wide knife to get the skin of easily. Watch your fingers!
Then chop it up into tiny pieces....
Take your time cutting if you are not great at chopping.
Grab your luscious tomato and cut off the top portion to make it easier to cut. Place cut part down
Then horizontally to get the perfect size and shape
Mix with cut garlic and squeeze some lemon juice over it.
Cut your red onion into small squares. Depending on how much you are making, find a good ratio. Start small and try if you need more. But you don't want to over power it
Grab some fresh basil leaves, bunch up and cut into strips.
Add to your mix along with olive oil and balsamic. I used white balsamic which I like better since it doesn't turn everything brown
Finish with salt and pepper
