Niçoise Cherry Tomato Salad
You'll never guess how we doubled the tomato flavor. (Hint: Waste note, want not.)
Why This Recipe Works
Tossing the quartered cherry tomatoes with salt and letting them sit drew out their excess moisture, preventing our Niçoise Cherry Tomato Salad from suffering a watery fate. When we reduced the excess tomato juice and simmered it with vinegar and a shallot, its concentrated flavor made a potent base for the vinaigrette and gave our Niçoise Cherry Tomato Salad a double tomato flavor.
