I came across some colorful and pretty Heirloom tomatoes at a local fresh produce store recently. The variety of colors were so pleasing that I just had to get some. So, I painstakingly picked out some of these tomatoes and turned them into this beautiful salad. I just used some lemon juice as dressing for the salad and topped it off with some fresh basil. The tomato salad tasted fantastic and not to mention, very healthy as well.
Heirloom Tomato Salad
8 to 10 Heirloom Tomatoes (mixed variety), sliced
A small bunch of Fresh Basil Leaves
6 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 Tbsp Freshly Squeeze Lemon Juice
Sea Salt to taste
Some freshly ground black pepper
Prepare the dressing. Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper and whisk and blend until emulsified.
In a large serving plate, arrange the tomatoes in circle and top with some Basil leaves.
Drizzle some lemon dressing over the tomatoes and serve immediately.
