Tomato salad with Jean´s salt

Some weeks ago it was my birthday and my friend Jean, that knows my passion for cuisine, gave me a wonderful birthday gift: A beautiful box with different types of salt from all over the world. I love so much this present that I began to make up an easy recipe in which we can delight the salt.

In the south of Spain there are very good tomatoes and you can eat them in a lot of ways, but the most common, quick, healthy and easy recipe is a “tomato salad” with olive oil and marine coarse salt.Therefore I made up this “Tomato salad with Jean´s salt”.


1kg. of good tomatoes
1 bunch of arugula
1 can of  Spanish black olives
Spanish extra virgin olive oil
My friend Jean´s salt. I used the one from New Zealand (You can use another one)

Wash the tomatoes, cut them and put in a bowl. Add the arugula and the black olives. Sprinkle generously  with the olive oil. Add the salt just before eating it.
It´s very delicious eating juicy tomatoes with the crunchy salt
