Marinated Tomato Salad with Garlicky Paprika Vinaigrette

Fresh, flavourful tomatoes drizzled with a garlic paprika vinaigrette and sprinkled with fresh herbs. Delicious and lovely.

This is the best way we know to eat fresh summer tomatoes.  To add substance nestle slabs of feta or fresh mozzarella in among the tomatoes. Be sure to serve it with crusty bread to sop up all of the dressing.

  • Category: Entrees and sides

Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 medium tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp fresh herbs (oregano, basil, chives…)

Marinade*:

  • 2 tsp spice mix (see recipe below)
  • 1 tsp Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Salt & pepper

Spice mix

  • 2 ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼½ tsp dried chipotle pepper or cayenne
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

Instructions

  1. Slice the tomatoes and lay them in a dish that’s deep enough to accommodate the marinade without it dribbling over the sides.
  2. Pour over the marinade and let the flavours blend for a couple of hours. Sprinkle with herbs before serving.
  3. If you’d like to make this a bit more substantial nestle some slabs of feta in among the tomatoes. Or you can serve grilled feta on the side.

 

Notes

*You’ll have way more marinade than you need so save the extra to use as a salad dressing.

    The idea of cold tomatoes with the spicy marinade/dressing and cold pieces of buffalo mozzarella makes my mouth just water! Add some sliced avocado and you’d have a masterpiece!
