Before you start

For good results, use only locally-grown, sun-ripened field tomatoes.


  1. Wash the tomatoes and wipe dry. Cut them in half crosswise, remove the seeds, then place the halves on a serving plate.
  2. Put the Parsley and Garlic base, capers and olive oil in a small bowl, then mix well. Distribute the mixture on top of each tomato half. Add a little salt, then serve.
