Heirloom Tomato Salad

13 May

A lovely, fresh salad fit to welcome the summer season. Based on a recipe from Tasty Kitchen by Jennifer with some small tweak. I found these delicious mini heirloom tomatoes at my local farmer’s market.

Time: 10min       Serves: 4


  • 2 pounds mini heirloom tomatoes (cherry or pear also work)
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1/2 cup basil, chopped/torn
  • sea salt & black pepper , freshly ground – to taste

How to make it

  • Slice tomatoes in half.
  • In a medium bowl, combine Balsamic and sugar. Whisk to combine. Slowly whisk in oil. Toss tomatoes lightly in dressing along with basil, salt and pepper. Best if you allow to rest for 30 minutes before serving, just toss again before you serve.
