  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 4


  • 1/4 small red onion, shaved paper thin (use a mandolin, if you have one)
  • splash of red wine vinegar
  • 45 large perfectly ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 1 handful fresh basil, cut into ribbons
  • 1 handful fresh mint, cut into ribbons
  • pinch of dried oregano
  • olive oil, for drizzling
  • coarse salt, to taste


  1. To a small bowl, add the onions with a splash of vinegar and a pinch of salt. Let it sit while you prep the rest of the salad.
  2. Add the tomatoes to a large bowl. Sprinkle the shaved onions and herbs over the top- the exact amount is up to you. Feel free to add more or less.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil to coat, and season with salt.
  4. Toss gently, being careful not to squash the tomatoes. Taste and adjust seasoning again if necessary.
  5. Chill until ready to serve, up to 1 our.
