Ingredients

  • 1.8kg ripe tomatoes (as many different colours, shapes and sizes as you can find – look out for heritage tomatoes at farmers’ markets and some supermarkets)
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar 
  • large pinch of black pepper
  • a small handful fresh thyme leaves 
  • a small handful fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 tbsp coarse sea salt
  • a handful of fresh basil leaves 

Method

  1. Slice the tomatoes into rounds or bite-size pieces. In a bowl, whisk the olive oil with the red wine vinegar and black pepper. Finely chop the thyme and rosemary leaves, add to a pestle and mortar, then crush with the coarse sea salt.
  2. Toss half the dressing and half the herb salt through the tomatoes, then leave to marinate for 30 minutes or so.
  3. Layer the tomatoes and the fresh basil leaves in a serving bowl, drizzling as you go with the rest of the dressing and herb salt. Serve.
