Heirloom Tomato Stacks

With just a few simple ingredients, you can have a gourmet summer dish ready in minutes.  I've been getting the most gorgeous organic, heirloom tomatoes from a local farm.  Combined with creamy, ripe avocados, refreshing lime and a zesty cilantro infused oil, this Mexican inspired dish makes a delicious starter or side.

 

 

 

 

 Heirloom Tomato Stacks with Avocado and Cilantro Infused Oil 

 Serves 4

 

For the Cilantro Infused Oil:

 

  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 3/4 cup cilantro leaves, well packed
  • 1/2 cup cold-pressed olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed chili pepper

 

Place the peeled garlic cloves in a food processor and pulse to chop.  Add the cilantro and process until finely chopped.  Alternately, you can mince the garlic and finely chop the cilantro by hand.  Place garlic and cilantro in a small bowl.  Stir in the olive oil, salt and chili pepper.  Set aside.

 

For the assembly:

 

  • 4 heirloom tomatoes of varying color
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 limes
  • Cilantro Infused Oil recipe from above

 

 

Slice the tomatoes into 1/2" thick slices.  For each stack you will need 3 tomato slices.  Pick out the 12 most evenly sized slices and mix up the colors for variety.  Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits.  Each stack will use 1/2 of an avocado, divided among 3 layers.  Slice each avocado thinly, about 1/4" per slice.  Cut the limes in half.

 

Gather 4 small plates.  Place one tomato slice on each plate.  Top with a layer of avocado, a generous squeeze of lime juice and a drizzle of cilantro oil.  Repeat for two more layers of tomato and avocado, finishing each stack with 3 layers of tomato, avocado, lime and cilantro oil.  Serve immediately.  Indulge with great pleasure!
