Tuscan Sun-Dried Tomato Mix

While in Tuscany on a bike trip some years back, we bought a package of tomato/herb mixture  in a shop that sold typical Tuscan food in the little town of Montepulciano.  The ingredients were, thankfully, on the label, and I was able to reproduce it when I got home.  It is a great mix to toss in pasta dishes and stews.  


  1. 1 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
  2. 1 tablespoon dried Italian herbs
  3. 1 tablespoon dried basil
  4. 1 tablespoon semi coarse sea salt
  5. 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  6. 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Mix all the ingredients except olive oil together really well.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the mix and stir until the mix is saturated with oil.
  3. Put in jar and refrigerate.

Note: Lasts about a month.
