Heirloom Tomato Salad with Tomato Vinaigrette



For this fast salad recipe, we top summer's ripest tomatoes with a bold tomato-based dressing for good measure. Serve as a light lunch with whole-grain toast or pair with grilled steak and chicken for dinner.

  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • Flaky salt for garnish
