Heritage Tomatoes Salad

By Amelia Freer From the book COOK NOURISH GLOW: Step Into Summer
Amelia Freer's Heritage Tomatoes Salad

In order to make sure that this salad is as delicious as it can possibly be, it’s important to use the ripest tomatoes you can find. These have the most flavour and the best texture. If buying from a supermarket, buy them on the vine and leave them to really ripen in a bowl for a couple of days. Tomatoes increase our natural melanin production – essential for protecting our skin in the summer months. With added protein from the eggs, this dish not only looks delicious but will leave you perfectly satisfied.

Ingredients

  • 800g Heritage tomatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 small round shallots, thinly sliced into circles
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • Extra virgin Olive oil
  • Salt

Instructions

Hard boil eggs (7-8 mins), run under cold water, peel and half.

Slice the tomatoes and lay on a large platter, scatter with the onions, and capers then drizzle with the best olive oil. Push the eggs through a fine sieve and sprinkle the garnish on top.
