Recipe: Flavourful Summer Salad with Tomatoes, Peaches, and Miso-Sesame Dressing

To demonstrate the art of combining flavours and textures, here is a simple but delicious recipe for a summer salad:


  • 1 kg mixed tomatoes (e.g., primaeval tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes)
  • 3 large ripe peaches
  • A bunch of basil leaves, picked
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Sweet & Sour Shallots: 

80 ml rice vinegar

3 tbsp fine granulated sugar

3 shallots, thinly sliced into rings

  • Miso-Sesame Dressing:

3 tbsp white shiro miso (or light brown miso)

60 ml grape seed oil

2 tsp tamari

3 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tsp fine granulated sugar


  • For the sweet and sour shallots, combine rice vinegar, sugar and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the shallots and let them marinate for 45 minutes, until they’re soft and slightly sour.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the miso-sesame dressing until smooth.
  • Cut the tomatoes and peaches into halves or wedges, depending on size, and place on a serving platter. Sprinkle it with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Drain the sweet and sour shallots and spread on top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle the salad with fresh basil leaves and drizzle the miso-sesame dressing over the top.
  • Serve the salad immediately to enjoy the vibrant flavours and textures.

Buen provecho!
