Mixed Tomato Salad with Smoked Paprika Dressing

This salad is a celebration of tomatoes but the versatile dressing works beautifully with whatever is freshest and best.

Serves: 6-8


500 grams mixed cherry tomatoes
2 large yellow or red beefsteak tomatoes, thickly sliced

 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
¾ teaspoon smoked paprika
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon finely diced red onion


Dressing: Whisk the oil, vinegar, mustard and paprika in a bowl and season. Stir in the onion.

Halve, roughly chop or slice the tomatoes depending on their size, and arrange on a platter.

Spoon some of the dressing over the tomatoes then serve the rest separately.
