Let’s make a tomato salad, an easy and quick recipe made with simple ingredients found in every pantry. Carve the tomatoes at the bottom and blanch for 30″. Place them into ice cold water so that the skins can be removed more easily. Peel the tomatoes. Cut the tomatoes into large pieces and place them in a dish. Tomatoes can be found just about everywhere in the world and are consumed by many people as a salad. It is better to cook tomatoes in summer, when they are in season, instead of during winter. Finely chop the garlic. Garlic is widely used in Greek cuisine. Squeeze a lemon to prepare the dressing. Remove the seeds from the juice carefully. Add the top quality and delicious Kalamata olives that have previously been sliced. Pour the extra virgin olive oil, the crushed pine seeds and the basil leaves and mix the dressing well. Break the rusks into small pieces and add them to the salad. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and this quick and simple meal is ready!
