Tomato, Onion and Green Pepper Salad with Shiso

  • FAST

Although this blend of raw tomatoes, paper-thin onion and mild green peppers seems Italian, it’s a common mix for Japanese farm families. Instead of the usual squirt of mayonnaise, author Nancy Singleton Hachisu drizzles on an Asian vinaigrette.

  1. 1 pound cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  2. 1/4 pound small mild green peppers, such as Italian frying peppers, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
  3. 1/2 small onion, very thinly sliced
  4. 2 tablespoons canola oil, preferably cold-pressed
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons organic soy sauce
  6. 1 1/2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
  7. 6 shiso leaves, thinly sliced
  1. In a large bowl, gently toss the tomatoes, peppers and onion. Drizzle with the oil, soy sauce and vinegar. Scatter the shiso on top and serve right away.
