Description[edit]

Tomato salad [1][2] is a light summer salad.

Ingredients[edit]

  • 2 lb heirloom tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges
  • coarse sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, slightly crushed
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 sprig of fresh basil, leaves only

Procedures[edit]

Sit the tomato wedges in a strainer and cover with 1/2 tbs of sea salt and 1/2 tbsp black pepper. Marinate for ~30 min, then brush off. Do the same for the sliced onions, but separately. Stab the garlic with a fork and rub the clove inside a salad bowl, then include the olive oil and vinegar, whisking together. Sprinkle in salt & pepper. Include the tomatoes, onion and basil leaves and toss.
