Jennifer Davick

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pound  assorted heirloom tomatoes, cut into 1/3-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 Cup  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons  thinly sliced basil, plus a few leaves for garnish

  • 3/4 Teaspoons  Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  flaked sea salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon  freshly ground pepper

Heirloom tomatoes are grown from seeds that have been saved from year to year. Their flavor is worlds away from the sort typically found in the produce department. The colors and shapes can vary greatly from one variety to another. So can the flavor. Choose several different kinds to create the prettiest summer salad. Taste and adjust the vinegar, salt, and pepper amounts to best highlight your unique tomatoes.
