Heirloom Tomato Salad with Mozzarella
Health Highlights


2 tbsp drained Capers, canned (fried in a bit of oil)
1 tsp Chives (to serve)
10 medium Heirloom tomatoes (halved or quartered)
1/3 cup shredded or chopped Iceberg lettuce
1 tsp Maple syrup
1 cup, diced Mozzarella cheese (torn into chunks)
1 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin (or lemon olive oil)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Slivered almonds


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and adjust the oven rack to the top third of the oven.

Place half the tomatoes in a bowl and toss along with the olive oil, sugar, and salt. Arrange them in a single layer, cut side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, without stirring, until the tomatoes shrink a bit and start to caramelize around the edges, 45 to 60 minutes. Set aside to cool.

When ready to serve, gently toss the roasted and raw tomatoes with a bit of chive or lemon oil, most of the almonds, the capers, the mozzarella, and the lettuce. Taste and season with a bit more salt if needed.

Serve topped with the remaining almonds, and any herb flowers you might have.
