“Naked” Red Tomato Salad
I’ve wanted to demonstrate this “naked” cherry tomato plant technique for a piece now, together with later on having something rattling similar at a Japanese eating seat recently, I decided the fourth dimension was right. The tomatoes this fourth dimension of twelvemonth inwards Northern California are spectacularly sweet, together with at that topographic point is literally no improve means to bask them, together with that includes eaten raw.
I used sherry vinegar, since my tomatoes were similar candy, merely if yours are less stellar, y’all may desire to become amongst a sweeter vinegar, similar rice or balsamic. By the way, I commonly become amongst basil for this, merely the shiso they used at the eating seat worked thence perfectly, that I decided to become amongst mint, which has a similar fragrance together with sweetness.
