What makes this different than other tomato salads? I'd say the grated garlic and I used fresh oregano.
2 1/4lbs tomatoes
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper-I used Kosher salt
Good pinch dried oregano-I used fresh oregano
Red wine or balsamic vinegar-I used red wine
Extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, peeled and grated
1 fresh red chile, seeded and chopped-I used a few shakes of crushed red pepper flakes
This is a "loosely written" recipe HERE but the picture with different colored tomatoes is beautiful!
- Cut tomatoes and add a good pinch of salt, stir, add another pinch of salt and stir again. Let sit in a colander to drain for 15 minutes, throw out liquid.
- In a large bowl mix tomatoes, oregano and make a dressing using 1 part vinegar to 3 parts olive oil, the garlic and chile. Drizzle with enough dressing to coat everything nicely. I had less than a pound of tomatoes and used 1 Tblsp vinegar and 3 tblsp oilive oil, also adjusted the garlic and oregano.
- Jamie suggests serving it with mozzarella and ciabatta bread. I just suggest trying it!
