"Soft and fair goes far."
This recipe is so deceptively simple and at once complex. It was served to me by Chef Luis at the Bodega Garmendia in Spain for lunch and is a staple of Spanish kitchens. The tomatoes are sweet and tart, there's a bit of bite from the onion, savory tuna with the fruity olive oil. Just the sprinkle of salt and pepper finishes it off. It just tastes like a hot summer day in Spain: with a bowl of chilled pea soup and a crust of bread, you're there (then time for a siesta).
Buying tomatoes at the supermarket can be a daunting task. The quality is often poor because most are picked green and ripened in big rooms using ethylene gas.
However, even the worst tomato can be made better by placing it stem side down on a sunny windowsill. It will continue to ripen the tomato further . If you want it chilled, place it in the fridge for only a couple of hours.
