Herb-Marinated Tomatoes

These are better the second day. More tomatoes may be added to the left-over marinade.

3 to 6 tomatoes, sliced

1/3 cup white wine vinegar

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves

¼ cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

¼ cup chopped fresh chives

½ teaspoon dried marjoram

½ teaspoon dried tarragon

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Arrange tomato slices in a shallow glass dish. In a small bowl, whisk remaining ingredients together; pour over tomatoes. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for a least 5 hours.  Serves 8 to 10.
