"This is the tomato salad I make almost every day," Andreas Viestad says. Since he always uses different varieties of tomatoes, the salad tastes different each time.

  1. 2 pounds heirloom tomatoes, cored—large ones sliced 1/4 inch thick, small ones halved
  2. Salt
  3. Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  4. 2 tablespoons minced chives
  5. 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  6. 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  1. Arrange the tomatoes on a platter. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with oil. Scatter the chives, basil and cheese on top.
Serve With Crusty bread.
