A roasted tomato salad that is bright, vibrant and full of flavour. The roasting brings out the sweetness of the tomatoes.
Roasting tomatoes helps to concentrate their flavour, whilst the addition of balasmic vinegar enhances their sweetness. Select the ripest and fresh tomatoes you can find. This is a great salad dish served with some gluten free bread to mop up the juices, or as a side dish. You could also puree this dish to use as a sauce over chicken, fish or veggies. Or add some stock and call it a soup…be creative and get roasting!
