For serving


  1. Whisk vinegar and salt in a medium bowl. Add onion and toss to combine. Let stand while you toast the bread. As the bread is toasting, slice the heirloom tomatoes into disks. Also slice cherry tomatoes, either in half or in 4 wedges. Add sliced cherry tomatoes to onion and toss to combine.
  2. Take a large serving plate or a shallow bowl and arrange the heirloom tomatoes on the bottom, they can overlap a bit. Top with the onion-tomato mix. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with basil and a generous pinch of fleur de sel.
  3. Serve immediately, together with bread and olives. You can also add some cheese and of course wine.


Store any leftover salad in the fridge, it’ll still taste pretty good later. You can also put it in a sandwich or burger, because that too is amazing.

You can use classic balsamic vinegar instead of white, but know that it’ll make the onions brown-ish. Red wine vinegar is a great choice too.
