This salad tastes like Italy to me, which means you can eat the produce as it comes, with almost no embellishment…When it’s this seasonally perfect, why molest the fruity amazing deliciousness with anything. Perhaps a nice piece of raw milk cheese would round out an afternoon snack….
Tomato Salad for One
One large heirloom tomato
14 fresh basil leaves

Cut the tomato in the way you would live to present this to yourself.
Chop the herds with a sharp knife
Put the salt in a small dish, add the vinegar and let it sit for three minutes
Add the olive oil and then the herbs.
Drench your tomato
