Heirloom Tomatoes with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette

I recently attended a Farm to Fork dinner at Gaining Ground Farm in Yamhill Oregon.  The dish that stood out for me among the stellar five courses we enjoyed was surprisingly the salad!  Not to sound too much like Jason Segal, but the smoked paprika vinaigrette was a revelation. This is my simplified version:

  • 2-4 Large heirloom tomatoes
  • 1/4 C. fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 1.4 C. good quality olive oil – on the grassy side
  • 1/8 C. champagne or white wine vinegar
  • 1 t. smoked Spanish paprika
  • 1/2 t. Kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper

Slice the tomatoes and arrange them on a platter.  Sprinkle them with parsley, salt, and pepper.  Combine the oil, vinegar, and paprika with a pinch of salt and shake to combine.  Pour over the tomatoes and serve.  The salad we had at the dinner also had some blanched green beans, toasted almonds, and blue cheese crumbles.  Yum!
