Garden Salad with Tomato-Water Vinaigrette


  • Author: Chef Anthony Paone

Description

 

My new summer salad addiction is tomato-water vinaigrette. I keep all my scraps when I’m cutting tomatoes, and when I have a pound of them, I chop them up, add 1½ tablespoons salt, and put this in a fine strainer over a jar. After a few hours, the clear, vibrant tomato water has drained into the jar. —Anthony Paone


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup tomato water
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Banyuls (or champagne) vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Combine first three ingredients and taste for seasoning. The tomato water will be a bit salty, so you may not need more salt. Tomatoes vary through the season, so you should also taste to balance the acid and oil.

Make a green salad with “right-now” ingredients like tomatoes (save all scraps for your next batch of tomato water) and cucumbers. Add some cheese, a fresh milky type like burratta, ricotta, or Bellwether Crescenza. In addition to lettuce, I add a few leaves of spicy arugula, basil buds (which are so fragrant and wonderful), fresh green coriander seeds, or just-picked mint. Ladle some vinaigrette over the whole dish, then finish with a little coarse salt and pepper.
