Tomato Olive Oil Salad Recipe

Last Update: September 28, 2022

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?
