3. Which Vinegar goes well with Tomato Salad.
White wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar and red wine vinegar are good companions, but require sparing use.
The strong acidity very quickly overpowers the delicate tomato flavor.
Ripe tomatoes can be cut open and seasoned without vinegar, only with salt, pepper, sugar and olive oil.
The salad without vinegar tolerate a little lemon juice and support the delicate tomato flavor with fully ripe fruit.Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt
Gourmets boil down balsamic vinegar to a balsamic glace and drizzle dabs of it over tomatoes cut in half or sliced.
4. Suitable Herbs to the Tomato Salad
For herbs, you can consider basil, marjoram, thyme, lovage, cress and parsley.
Star chefs finely pluck the basil leaves. This prevents them from turning brown.Herbs Tip from Chef Thomas Sixt
