Tomato salad with Shiso

Lots of folks only recognize shiso as the garnish on their sushi plate. Its much more than that. It is a slightly medicinal herb and can be used to make mojitos, pesto or this yummy salad.

Recipe take from Gourmet magazine.
  • 3 pounds very ripe assorted heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 cups small cherry tomatoes
  • Fine sea salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup shallot dressing
  • 3/4 cup loosely packed shredded fresh green shiso leaves (about 1 bunch)
  • Cut heirloom tomatoes into small chunky wedges and halve cherry tomatoes (unless very small). Season tomatoes with sea salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss with dressing and marinate tomatoes 5 minutes.
  • Toss tomatoes with shiso leaves and serve with juices from bowl.
