Heirloom Tomato Salad with Vino Cotto

Heirloom Tomato Salad with Vino Cotto
Serve 4

I prefer to use a variety of tomatoes (ie black Russian, Cherry, Yellow Pear, Roma, Vine Ripped  etc), to add colour and depth to this perfect tomato salad experience.

Heirloom Tomato Salad with Vino Cotto dressingAllowing this salad to sit for a while after it is dressed and tossed will enable the tomato juices and bocconcini milk to add flavour to the salad.

700g assorted heritage tomatoes cut into preferred sizes
¼ cup basil leaves
¼ flat leaf parsley
A handful rocket leaves, optional
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
Extra virgin olive oil, drizzle
Vino cotto, drizzle
Salt and black pepper
250g Bocconcini, halved
Place tomatoes, herbs, rocket and onion in a mixing bowl, then add a drizzle of oil and vino cotto.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Mix well.  Scatter the bocconcini onto the salad and drizzle a little more oil just before serving.

Alternatively, you can stack the tomatoes alternating with bocconcini and basil.
