Fresh Tomato Salad

When you have a perfectly ripe tomato, less is more.   This is a simple salad that lets  the tomato shine.



ripe tomatoes

1/2 preserved lemon, rinsed, pulp removed and finely diced

fresh chives, mint or basil, finely sliced

olive oil


Chop tomatoes into bite size pieces.  Toss with preserved lemon,  fresh herbs, a generous drizzle of olive oil and freshly ground pepper.  Let stand several minutes, taste for salt and add if necessary.


COOKS NOTE:  Even after rinsing, the preserved  lemons are fairly salty and will impart some of that saltiness to the tomatoes.   Taste before adding salt.
