  • Tomato Salad

    This simple tomato salad can also be used to make bruschetta. Although not exclusive to Puglia, it is often served on toasted bread as a starter, as it highlights the quality and sweetness of ripe Puglian tomatoes. Try it with the Orecchiette with Broccoli (see recipe) or the Spaghetti with Zucchini and Pecorino Cheese (see recipe).

    • 1 pound (454 g) ripe tomatoes, chopped
    • ½ red onion, peeled and finely chopped
    • 1½ teaspoons (7.5 mL) sea salt
    • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) extra virgin olive oil
    • 1½ tablespoons (22.5 mL) red wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) chopped basil

    1. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes and onion. Season with the salt, olive oil, and vinegar.

    2. Serve sprinkled with the basil.
