Marinated Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Marinated sun-dried tomatoes are a welcome addition to almost any antipasto spread, but they’re also great in salads, on pizzas, and in panini. We found that the key to great marinated sun-dried tomatoes is in how they’re hydrated.
Why This Recipe Works
We quickly realized that the trick to a good marinated sun-dried tomatoes recipe wasn’t in the marinade but rather the degree to which the tomatoes were rehydrated. We found that covering the dry tomatoes with water and microwaving them softened them enough so that they were still quite chewy. Then, allowing them to stand for a few more minutes brought them to just the right consistency. For the marinade for our sun-dried tomatoes recipe, we liked a simple mixture of extra-virgin olive oil, garlic, parsley, and red pepper flakes brightened up with some lemon juice and seasoned with salt and pepper.
