marinated tomatoes teruel

leave a comment »

The remote and mountainous Spanish town of Teruel is not only known for it’s Moorish architecture but is also renowned for it’s jamón serrano (cured ham). This salad would make a fitting accompaniment.


Slice 3 very large ripe tomatoes and arrange them in a single layer in a shallow serving dish. In a bowl combine ⅓ of a cup of olive oil with ¼ of a cup of sherry vinegar (try to use sherry vinegar if at all possible otherwise substitute red wine vinegar), ¼ of a cup of finely chopped red onion, 2 tablespoons of drained capers, 2 tablespoons of minced fresh parsley, 1 large minced garlic clove, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of crumbled dried basil, and ¼ of a teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper. Mix well then spoon the dressing over the tomatoes. Cover and chill for 3 hours before serving.
