Tomato-Cucumber and Red Onion Salad with Creamy Tarragon Dressing

tomato-saladBy David Harbilas

The combination of tomatoes and cucumbers is nothing new, so why bother?

Because sometimes a slight change can renew an old favorite.

Tarragon has a wonderful licorice-citrus flavor that isn’t utilized very often in salads, and red onions provide a heat that wakes up the sweetness of the tomatoes and the cooling effect of the cucumbers.

Serves 4

Cod with Roasted Tomato-Tarragon Hollandaise

Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed With Cream Cheese and Bacon - TomatoCasual.comBy David Harbilas

The French have many variations for hollandaise, and the familiar addition of tarragon is part of the ubiquitous béarnaise sauce.

Tomatoes and fish are a natural combination, so the addition of butter and herbs are a clear choice.

Serves 2

for the roasted tomato puree:

  • 1 vine-ripe tomato, not a plum variety
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

for the hollandaise:
