I bought a large variety of tomatoes at the La Cigale market (in Parnell, Auckland). They simply need tossing in a large bowl with a few other ingredients to make this light and tasty salad. My super-sprouts came with edible flowers through the mix, but they can be sourced separately. Everything in this salad was found at the market.
For the salad
|400 g||Tomatoes, mixed varieties e.g. black, cherry, yellow|
|½ cup||Black olives|
|100 g||Mozzarella cheese, torn|
|¼ cup||Edible flower|
|1 to taste||Sea salt and cracked black pepper|
For the dressing
- Place the tomatoes in a large bowl, cutting in halves or quarters if they are large. Add olives and sprouts.
- Mix all the ingredients for the dressing and toss through salad. Place on a platter.
- Add mozzarella and sprinkle edible flowers over. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
