Raw Tomato Sauce
From EatingWell: August/September 2006
In this raw sauce, tomatoes marinate in their own juices along with some fresh herbs, garlic, extra-virgin olive oil and red-wine vinegar. Diced fresh mozzarella absorbs the delicious flavors of the whole melange. Toss with hot or room-temperature pasta.

- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh marjoram
