Fresh summer salad

Active Time: 15 minutes
Start to Finish: 15 minutes


  • 2 large heirloom tomatoes
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. shallot, minced
  • ½ clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbs. fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 Tbs. fresh chives, chopped


Chop the tomato in large, coarse chunks and place in a medium-sized bowl. Add rest of ingredients to bowl and stir gently to mix ingredients. Let tomatoes soak in dressing for 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon, place in another bowl to serve.


There will be a lot of liquid, which is why you should serve with a slotted spoon.

The raw garlic and shallot are quite strong, so if you are not a fan, use less or leave these out.

Choosing an Olive Oil
If a recipe calls for olive oil, you may substitute extra virgin olive oil; but if it calls for extra virgin olive oil, we do not suggest substituting any other type of olive oil.

Chopping basilChopping basil
To slice or mince basil easily, make a pile of all of the basil leaves, with the largest leaves on the bottom. Roll up the leaves to form a cigarette shape. Slice the basil in 1/8 inch slices, which will give you a chiffonade. If you want the basil minced, simply cut the slices crosswise.
