Tomatoe conserva vinaigrette with fresh tomatoes
Prep time
Total time
The dressing is amazing and can be used on any salad. I really like to use the marinated fresh mozzarella bite sized balls in this salad. You can get them most anywhere. Fine cooking suggested burrata, which is a fresh mozzarella with soft creamy insides, but I haven’t found that in my small town anywhere.

Serves: 4 servings
  • The dressing
  • ¼ cup of tomato conserva,
  • chopped ¼ cup of Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt and pepper
  • The salad
  • 1-2 pounds of heirloom tomatoes,
  • sliced ¼ inch thick 8 oz of fresh mozzarella or burrata (optional)
  • 10 or so basil leaves, chiffonade
  • Flaky sea salt such as Maldon’s for serving
  1. Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a small jar with a tight lid and shake it up. Shake it good! Layer the tomato slices on four salad plates and then add 2 oz of the cheese to each plate, sprinkle with the basil and sea salt, drizzle with the dressing and serve. Voila! Fun with veggies.
