8-10 tomatoes, a good variety

3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar

A good handful of basil leaves

Sea salt and ground black pepper

 

Serving platter

10 mins
Serves 4

Tomatoes in season are one of natures true gifts and although there are many ways to enjoy them, for me freshly sliced and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and garnished with a few herbs from the garden is the best.  There are many varieties of tomatoes to choose from and for a salad like this which really celebrates them, try and choose a variety.  I use basil leaves here but thyme or oregano work just as well.  Serve as simple summer salad or as a side dish to grilled meats and fish.

 

 

Slice the tomatoes and arrange on a serving plate.
Whisk together the oil and vinegar until combined and drizzle over the tomatoes. Tear over the basil leaves and season with sea salt and ground black pepper. Serve immediately.

TOP TIP

If you prepare the tomatoes ahead of time, only season just before you are ready to serve as the salt with draw out the liquid in the tomatoes.

    Tomato and basil salad is one of our favourites here too. My hubby throws on a bit of goats cheese and he’s in heaven!
