Preparation Time: 5 Minutes

Cooking Time: None

 

 

 

Recipe:

 

  • Cut the tomatoes into thick slices (about quarter of an inch thick, which is just a bit under a centimeter). Remove the cores from the slices.

  • Arrange the slices on a serving plate.

  • Cut the shallots into pieces. For an authentic recipe, they should be coarsely cut, but many people prefer finely cut. Sprinkle the shallots over the tomato slices.

  • Mix the vinegar and olive oil together and then pour over the tomatoes.

  • Cut the baget into slices and place onto a plate or in a bread basket.

  • Put the serving disk on the table with a pair of spoons, along with the bread, so guests can help themselves.


Notes:

The bread isn't necessary, but makes a nice addition. If the meal isn't too posh, it is a pleasure to mop up the salad dressing with the bread.

This is a very simple dish, but quite enjoyable, especially on a hot summer day. It's very simplicity means that the quality of the raw ingredients comes out (for good or bad), so particular attention should be given to getting fresh, ripe tomatoes and a high quality olive oil.
