Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1/2 Cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup basil leaves, chopped finely
  • 1/2 shallot, chopped finely
  • 1/2 Teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 Pounds heirloom tomatoes, sliced if large or medium, halved or quartered if very small

Directions

Toast the coriander seeds in a small dry pan, moving constantly, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Let cool on the counter or a cutting board. Then crush the seeds with the base of a small pan or a large serving spoon and set aside. Fan the tomatoes on a platter, overlapping as needed. Stir the yogurt, basil, shallot, and salt together, then drizzle over the tomatoes. Season with the coriander and serve immediately.
