Michael Cimarusti's Filipino-born father-in-law, Fred Echiverri, inspired this Asian take on a classic tomato salad.

How to Make It
In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lime juice, fish sauce and ginger. Arrange the tomatoes on a large platter and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the scallions and cilantro, and arrange the anchovies around the platter and serve.
Marinated white anchovies are available at specialty markets.
