Marinated Heirloom Tomatoes

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. 

Ingredients:

Local Heirloom Tomatoes – sliced into ¼” rounds

(We use Man's Organic Heirloom tomatoes from Southern Alberta)

Lemon Zest

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)

How-to:

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. 

Bon Appetito!
