Fanny's Tomato Salad With Crispy Shallots
  • Makes: 6 servings
  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Carb Grams Per Serving: 18


  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 large shallots (about 1/2 pound total), sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick and separated into rings
  • 3 -4 pounds small tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves, torn


  1. In a small bowl, combine the minced shallot and vinegar and let stand for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk in 3 tablespoons olive oil to make a vinaigrette; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small skillet, heat 1/2 cup olive oil over medium-high heat. Add half the sliced shallots and cook only about 2 minutes, or until they are approaching golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, lift the shallots out of the oil and transfer them to a paper towel to drain. Season with salt. Repeat with the remaining sliced shallots. Set aside.
  4. Arrange the tomatoes on a large platter. Season with salt and pepper. Just before serving, drizzle with the vinaigrette and top with the fried shallots and basil leaves.
