Heritage Tomato Salad

Prep: 15 mins
Heritage Tomato Salad
Firm but ripe tomateos make the best salads. Soft, ripe tomatoes also make a good salad, but they must be dipped for an instant in boiling water and then peeled. 

½ tsp sugar

¼ tsp salt

Black pepper

French dressing

1 tsp chopped basil


½ mild onion or 6 spring onions

Peel and slice 1 or 2 tomatoes per person.

Sprinkle with sugar, salt and several grinds of black pepper.

Toss immediately in just enough French dressing to coat the fruit and sprinkle with some or all of the herbs and onion.

Tomatoes must be dressed immediately after they are cut to seal in their aroma and served as soon as possible.
