Heirloom Tomato Salad (3)

This recipe highlights that a recipe can be super simple if you have the best ingredients. Our heirloom tomatoes are special in that they are grown solely for the farmers markets and CSA and picked at their peak. They are a softer variety of tomato, low in acid and super sweet. Enjoy this simple salad with avocado, cucumbers and red onion too!


2 pounds heirloom tomatoes, cored: large ones sliced 1/4 inch thick, small ones halved
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
2 tablespoons minced chives
2 tablespoons chopped basil
1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese


1. Arrange the tomatoes on a platter. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with oil. Scatter the chives, basil and cheese on top.
