Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1-2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon caster sugar
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 small banana shallot
oregano sprigs
8-10 heritage tomatoes, (ideally a mixture of colours and sizes)
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. In a small bowl, combine the wine vinegar and sugar with some salt and pepper to make a vinaigrette. Stir well to allow the sugar to dissolve before slowly whisking in the olive oil.
  2. Halve, peel and finely dice the shallot and chop enough oregano leaves to give you ½–1 teaspoon. Mix the shallot and oregano into the vinaigrette and set aside for 5–10 minutes to allow the flavours to blend.
  3. Slice the tomatoes thinly through the equator so they still hold their shape. Pour the dressing over the tomatoes, making sure they are well coated. Adjust the seasoning and arrange on a plate.
