A simple Sliced Tomato makes a wonderful side for any meal, especially if it is a home grown tomato. But add a little olive oil, a splash of red wine vinegar and a bit of fresh parsley and I’m in heaven.
Sliced Tomato Salad is best when it’s fresh.
This Sliced Tomato Recipe couldn’t be any simpler. You don’t have to measure (but I’ll give you measurements in the recipe anyway). You don’t have to whisk. Really. You just slice the tomato, fan it out, splash on a little olive oil, shake on a bit of vinegar. Add some parsley to make it prettier, and eat. It is our “go to” recipe this time of year.
What You Need
You need a serrated knife, cutting board and a flat serving dish. A pair of scissors is helpful, as well. And put on John Denver’s “Home Grown Tomato” song while you’re eating.
