Cherry tomatoes, basil leaves and crunchy pistachios blend to create a simple, yet complex flavored salad. This recipe is adapted from the master of using spices and seasonings to ramp up the flavors of just about everything, Yotam Ottolenghi. I have learned to use so many new spices from his many great cookbooks. I made a few small changes to the salad based on my on-hand ingredients, using only Heirloom cherry tomatoes and toasted pistachios instead of pine nuts. This is an in-the-moment salad, toss ingredients, plate and serve immediately.
