How to make Tomato Fig salad with lemon
Start with the dressing. Finely grate or press the garlic. Mix with the other ingredients.
Slice the tomatoes and place them on a large platter.
Cut the stems of the figs into thin slices and mix with the tomatoes. Peel, halve and cut the onion into thin rings. Spread them over. Halve the lemons lengthwise, cut them into ultra-thin slices and arrange them on top.
Taste the dressing with the piece of each salad ingredient. Need some salt and pepper?
To serve: drizzle the dressing over the salad and garnish with basil leaves.
The recipe is from the cookbook The Andalusian Dream.
For dessert, you can serve Tina’s delicious mazarin cake with homemade marzipan.
