I put this salad together, for a fall brunch,using what i had on hand. Starting with the beautiful yellow tomato; adding ingredients for contrast in flavor, color and texture, creates a delicious and beautiful salad.
Tomato Pomegranate Salad
heirloom (or other flavorful tomato)
fresh chevre or fresh ricotta
toasted and coarsely chopped pistachio nuts
freshly ground black pepper
Arrange the tomato wedges–cut into one bite pieces, on platter. Drop chevre or ricotta evenly over the tomatoes. Sprinkle pomegranate seeds, chives and pistachio nuts. The idea is that each bite will have a bit of each element, but not an overwhelming amount of each. So be mindful of the proportion. Add a bit of sea salt and black pepper to taste and lightly drizzle a “finishing” olive oil on top. Serve room temperature. If you prepare in advance, allow to come to room temperature before serving.
