Every summer when I get my hands on irrationally large quantities of colorful cherry tomatoes, I only have only one idea in mind: serving them in as many bright and flavorful salads as I can to make the most of their perfectly ripe, summery taste.
One of my favorite salads to make with cherry tomatoes is an Italian Caprese pasta salad, but several years ago, I was inspired by a simple recipe Jamie Oliver made in his Andalusia TV show, which added a Spanish twist to the classic Italian Panzanella salad. In my version of Spanish tomato salad, the addition of spicy chorizo, crumbled feta cheese, and crunchy almonds all make the dish irresistibly flavorful and textured. I like to serve the salad with crusty bread to make it a meal—and soak up all those delicious salad juices!
This Spanish tomato salad is nutritious enough to be served as a main course, though you could very well serve it in smaller portions alongside grilled meat.
Salting and resting tomatoes allow excess water to drip out and concentrate the flavor. It also takes care of the seasoning, as the tomatoes absorb only the right amount of salt. With the addition of chorizo and feta, it’s unlikely that you’ll need to add any more salt to the salad, but make sure to taste before serving and season again if needed.
