Heirloom Tomato Salad with Basil-Yogurt Drizzle

Heirloom Tomato Salad with Basil-Yogurt Drizzle

Serves 4

Coriander spiked basil-yogurt dressing classes up simple sliced tomatoes. Use a variety of tomato colors and sizes for most visual impact. You can make the dressing up to a day ahead, but slice and dress the tomatoes as close to serving time as possible.

  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 2 pounds heirloom tomatoes, sliced if large or medium, halved or quartered if very small
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (full fat or low fat)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Toast coriander seeds in a small dry pan, moving constantly, until fragrant (about 2 minutes). Let toasted seeds cool on the counter or a cutting board. Then crush seeds with the base of a small pan or a large serving spoon, set aside. Fan tomatoes on a platter, overlapping as needed. Stir yogurt, basil, shallot and salt together; drizzle over tomatoes. Sprinkle with coriander and serve immediately.
