Summer days = summer produce. To celebrate the season of plenty, we bring you a recipe for a simple salad bursting with flavour. Grab your heirloom tomatoes and a few other ingredients and you will soon have a lovely seasonal salad.
Local Heirloom Tomatoes – sliced into ¼” rounds
(We use Man's Organic Heirloom tomatoes from Southern Alberta)
Fleur De Sel or Maldon
Chives – Sliced into rounds that are as thick as the width of your chives
Chive Flowers – optional for presentation. Separate flowers from bunch.
Smoked Arbequena Olive Oil (available at Our Daily Brett)
Arrange sliced tomatoes on a plate. Zest 1 lemon directly on the tomatoes. Season with Fleur De Sel or Maldon Salt. Pour 1 or 2 glugs of a nice fruity olive oil over the tomatoes – I like smoked or regular arbequena. Garnish with chives and chive flowers. Feel free to add cheese (Parmigiano Reggiano, Fior Di Latte Mozzarella, Feta, Queso etc.) if you are so inclined.
