With tomatoes still in season, why not try this refreshing tomato dish at the mezze table. Great vegan dish, we sometimes add little smoked paprika for a twist. It almost reminds me of tartare. I did a meze shoot last year with crush online with this beautiful fresh meze dish.
Yield: 500g before strained
6 large fully ripe tomatoes- (350g tomato flesh)
1 ea roasted red pepper seasoned (80g)
½ small red onion (30g)
1 spring onion
1 tbsp chopped parsley (4g)
1 tbsp mint (4g)
20ml olive oil
10 ml lemon juice
Zest lemon (pinch)
10ml white wine vinegar
5ml tomato paste
Skin tomatoes, by placing whole tomatoes in boiling water and refreshing in ice water.
Cut tomatoes into quarters and remove inner juice and seeds, chop the tomato as fine as possible, do the same with the peppers, onion, parsley and mint.
Place everything in a bowl and season. Allow to stand for 1 hour. I strain my salad before serving, but this is not necessary and it can be left as.
