This warm, garlicky anchovy dressing here is fantastic with an assortment of juicy, peak-season tomatoes. To finish the dish, Amelia O’Reilly and Nico Monday top it with tangy pickled shallots and an oozy, soft-boiled egg. Slideshow: Great Summer Salads

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small skillet, combine the olive oil, anchovies, garlic and lemon zest.

Step 2    

In a small bowl, toss the shallot with the vinegar and let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 3    

Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Turn the heat to low and, when the water is simmering, gently place the eggs in the water. Cook for 6 minutes, until lightly boiled. Have an ice bath ready near the stove. With a slotted spoon, plunge the eggs in the ice bath and let cool for 2 minutes. Peel the eggs.

Step 4    

Arrange the tomatoes on 4 plates and season with fleur de sel and pepper. Scatter the shallot and vinegar over the tomatoes.

Step 5    

Warm the anchovy dressing over moderate heat to a gentle simmer; pour over the tomatoes. Cut the eggs in half crosswise and place a half on each plate. Scatter the parsley and marjoram over the salad and serve at once.

Suggested Pairing

Tangy, fresh tomatoes like the ones in this salad call for a vibrant white to match their acidity.
