This recipe is 100% inspired by my favorite French chef, Mimi Thorisson. Mimi’s cookbook, A Kitchen in France, takes my soul and imagination into her farmhouse in Medoc. I love this recipe.
I came upon this salad recipe, as I was adoring her life, cooking style and family, which she portrays beautifully in this cookbook.
This salad reminded me of a tomato salad my southern mother made often on Sunday. My mom’s recipe, included, cucumbers, onions, white vinegar, sugar and of course tomatoes. I love my mom’s salad, but this one is very delicate and just as refreshing as moms.
The garlic I added, gives the salad a nice bite to it. It’s definitely one to eat with love ones. Lol.
Enjoy and remember to Set the Table with Love.
3 shallots, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 cup really good extra virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 large steak tomato, sliced 1/2 inch thick
A bunch of fresh parsley, leaves removed and finely chopped
Whisk together the shallots, garlic, mustard, olive oil in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Arrange the tomatoes on a serving plate. Drizzle the shallot and garlic vinaigrette over the tomatoes and scatter the parsley on top.
Thanks Mimi Thorisson. Love this recipe!!
