Multicoloured tomato salad
Insalata di pomodori diversi
Tomatoes in all sorts of different colours, shapes and sizes dressed olive oil and thyme flowers make up a nice multicoloured tomato salad.
When tomatoes are available in all sorts of different colours, shapes and sizes, there’s nothing quite as uplifting as a multicoloured tomato salad dressed olive oil and thyme flowers. There are allegedly 7500 tomato varieties grown for various purposes, so there should be something to choose from at the local farmers’ market. Even if the more colourful species can be hard to find. You can also turn the salad into a panzanella by adding onions and bread and a little more work on flavouring, or you can dress up the salad with some fried peppers and pine nuts for greater variety.
