Tomato Olive Oil Salad Recipe

At their peak of ripeness, summer's heirloom tomatoes explode with sweet, robust flavor—which you don't want to overpower with creamy dressing. Instead, show off heirlooms in a simple salad of fresh herbs, shallot, full-bodied olive oil, and flaky sea salt. It tastes gourmet, yet requires no cooking—what could be better?
