Recipe: Heirloom tomato salad
- 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon truffle oil, or 1⁄4 teaspoon truffle salt (optional)
- 2 1⁄2 pounds multicoloured medium-to-small heirloom tomatoes, cut into 1⁄2-inch wedges
- 6 to 8 fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped
1 In a jar with a lid combine the vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, and truffle oil (if using). Shake vigorously until well mixed.
2 Put the tomatoes and basil in a medium bowl and add the dressing. If using the truffle salt, sprinkle over the salad and gently mix until well coated. This salad tends to get a little soggy if it sits longer than a day, so be sure to eat it the day you prepare it.
Makes 4-6 servings.
