Author's Notes

Makes 2-4 portions.

Rinsing the red onions removes most of the harsh kick from the onion and leaves behind the natural sweetness of the onion.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
First, make the sour cream smear. In a small bowl, combine the Sour Cream (3/4 cup), Honey (1 tsp), 1 Tbsp of Lemon (1), 1 1/2 Tbsp of Lemon Juice, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp), and Salt (1/4 tsp). Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Set aside
step 2
Season the Rainbow Cherry Tomatoes (3 cups) and Cucumber (1). In a mixing bowl, toss the cherry tomatoes, cucumber, Balsamic Vinegar (to taste), Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (to taste), Sea Salt Flakes (to taste), and Ground Black Pepper (to taste). Set aside.
step 3
Now assemble the salad. On a platter or serving plate, dollop and smear the sour cream to form a base. With a slotted spoon, spoon the tomato and cucumber mixture on top, leaving the liquid behind.
step 4
Sprinkle the Red Onion (1/4) and Fresh Basil (2 Tbsp) over the top. Drizzle with Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (to taste) and a sprinkle of Sea Salt Flakes (to taste).
step 5
Serve with a crusty Baguette (1) for bruschetta.
