Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole, peeled almonds, toasted
  • 1 small clove garlic, peeled
  • 2 cups very ripe cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 20 large basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Chef notes

    I love this recipe because it's so simple yet so satisfying. It's full of fresh tomatoes, garlic, toasted almonds and Parmigiano. It's delicious and different, and very Italian.

    Technique tip: Great way to use over-ripe tomatoes in the summer.

    Swap option: You can sub the cherry tomatoes for any very ripe tomato.

    Preparation

    Add the peeled almonds and garlic to a blender or food processor and pulse until slightly chunky. Then add the remainder of the ingredients and pulse until well combined. Adjust seasoning with kosher salt, to taste.
