2 large heirloom tomatoes
3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1½ tsp. white wine vinegar
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. shallot, minced
½ clove garlic, minced
1 Tbs. fresh basil, chopped
1 Tbs. fresh chives, chopped


Chop the tomato in large, coarse chunks and place in a medium-sized bowl. Add rest of ingredients to bowl and stir gently to mix ingredients. Let tomatoes soak in dressing for 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon, place in another bowl to serve.


There will be a lot of liquid, which is why you should serve with a slotted spoon.

The raw garlic and shallot are quite strong, so if you are not a fan, use less or leave these out.  If you want to tame the shallots somewhat, soak them for about 15 minutes before adding to the dressing.
