Basil Tomato Salad with Balsamic Vinegar

by veronica

This is a perfect summer salad when you can access ripe plum tomatoes. I’m a tomato addict galore and I can eat buckets of this salad. It’s also a perfect side salad for an Italian-style dish or buffet.

Serves: 4


• 15-20 plum tomatoes

• 3 fresh garlic stems

• A pot of fresh basil – the more the merrier

• Balsamic vinegar cream – the thick and creamy version of balsamic vinegar


1. Half tomatoes – put them in a large bowl

2. Slice the garlic stems into thin slices – mix with the tomatoes

3. Rip the basil leaves of the plant and mix with the tomatoes

4. Add some sea salt – mix

5. Decorate the top with the balsamic vinegar cream
