If there are kids in the kitchen who want to help out, you can ditch the knives for this easy appetizer; just rip the tomatoes and basil with your hands. The tomato mixture can also be tossed with pasta to make a fresh sauce.From the book "Lucinda's Rustic Italian Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).

I thought that this was good. Too much salt- next time i'll put in less but otherwise super easy to prepare and yummy.
