Mediterranean Tomato Salad

Shallot or mild onion
Soft goat’s cheese
Salt and pepper
Basil leaves
Olive oil

Take some fine solid Mediterranean tomatoes, misshapen and mottled with green, almost bursting at the seams. Slice them onto a large flat plate. Thinly slice one shallot or a small mild onion and scatter the rings sparingly among the tomatoes. In the middle of the plate, place a fresh soft goat’s cheese. Sprinkle a little freshly ground black pepper on the cheese if you like. Season the tomatoes with salt, pepper and virgin olive oil. Scatter some whole fresh basil leaves over them. Serve with French bread, or thin slices of rye bread.
