Piirun verran parempi tomaatti-mozzarellasalaatti

Kesällä kun vihannekset ovat tuoreimmillaan, on raikas ja klassinen tomaatti-mozzarellasalaatti yksi helpoimpia ja ihanimpia lounassalaatteja. Myös Etelä-Euroopassa matkustaessa tämä annos tulee tilattua useaan otteeseen. Syynä ovat tietenkin täydellisen mehukkaat ja makeat tomaatit, jotka saavat loistaa simppelissä salaatissa.

No, ikävä kyllä tomaatit eivät enää syksyllä ja talvella ole mitään makupommeja täällä Suomessa, joten tomaatti-mozzarellasalaattikin muuttuu nopeasti mauttoman valjuksi. Koska en silti suostu luopumaan tästä suosikista, piti keksiä keinoa hieman parannella sitä. Niin klassikosta syntyi tämä ihana versio, jossa tomaattien makua voimistetaan uunissa paahtamalla. Jos olet tomaatti-mozzarellasalaattien suurkuluttaja kesäisin, suosittelen ehdottomasti kokeilemaan tätä talvisempaa versiota!

Piirun verran parempi tomaatti-mozzarellasalaatti

1 annos (2 annosta lisukkeena)
laktovege, gluteeniton
35 min

– 2-3 kourallista kirsikkatomaatteja
– 3 rkl rypsiöljyä
– suolaa
– muutama oksa tuoretta timjamia
– 1 pakkaus hyvää mozzarellaa (esimerkiksi buffalomozzarellaa)
– muutama lehti tuoretta basilikaa
– 0,5 rkl paksua balsamicokastiketta
– ripaus mustapippuria

Kuumenna uuni 220 asteiseksi.
Levitä kirsikkatomaatit uunivuokaan yhdeksi kerrokseksi, ripottele päälle öljy, reilu ripaus suolaa ja muutama oksa tuoretta timjamia. Paahda tomaatteja uunissa noin 25–30 minuuttia, kunnes tomaatit ovat pehmeitä ja paahtuneita.
Kun tomaatit ovat valmiit, asettele ne lautaselle (älä kaada tomaateista irronnutta nestettä pois). Revi päälle mozzarella. Silppua basilika ja levitä mozzarellan ja tomaattien päälle. Viimeistele annos uunivuoan pohjalle tomaateista irronneella nesteellä (helpoin ja herkullisin salaattikastike ikinä!), balsamicolla ja ripauksella mustapippuria. Nauti heti!

  • “Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that is the one that is going to help you grow.”
- Caroline Myss
Three amazing days done, two more to go. Last two weeks have been hard, but so rewarding. This quote sums up my thoughts about everything what’s happening with work right now. And I believe that if the next thing you’re doing doesn’t scare you at all, it’s not big enough. Let’s dream big!✨
  • My favourite moments in the summer are these magical hours when the golden light is sifting through the branches and leaves. It’s still warm, but not as hot as during the day. A perfect moment to sit down for a while, have a piece of rhubarb pie and enjoy the view.
Like I told, this week is crazy busy. But I’ve enjoyed these two photoshoot days a lot. Three more days to go and then I’m off to our cottage again!
I hope you have a relaxing Tuesday evening!
My very own cookbook (both English and Finnish versions). Let me introduce you - From Oven to Table, The Art of Sheet Pan Cooking. I’ve worked for this book over a year. 50 recipes and dozens of moody still life shots in one covers, made just for you.
Writing a cookbook is a thing you do for passion. I’m not going to lie, it can be exhausting and at some point it makes you hope you had never started that project. But still, it’s the most amazing feeling to see my own pictures and recipes printed on that fine paper, wrapped in hard covers with gold foiling.
Like both my previous cookbooks, this book is made for every home cook, who wants to cook simple, easy and delicious food without using a fortune on the ingredients. I’ve given my heart to this, and I hope you’ll enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed making it. (See more of the book in my stories!)
So, you can finally buy my book, and with 20% discount, but only for this week! So be quick! Click the link in bio to buy the English version. (If you want your copy signed by me, leave a note while making the payment!)
Suomenkielinen Peltiruokaa-kirja on nyt saatavilla ainakin kaikilla suurimmilla jälleenmyyjillä, kuten @suomalainenkirjakauppa :lla. Voit tilata omasi suoraan kotiisi tai hypistellä opusta kirjakauppojen hyllyillä!
Last but not least, thank you for everyone who has been part of this journey and thank you everyone who has ever cooked using my recipes! It means a world to me.
  • A busy week ahead and a Sunday evening full of work – wish me luck!
I still can’t stop thinking about how happy it made me that I could spend 24 hours away from the city. In the middle of green, blooming nature. This was the first summer weekend. The temperature rose up to 25 C and I felt bad that I didn’t have my swimsuit with me.
I saw a sea eagle flying above my garden, had the joy of planting a new sea buckthorn tree, bathed in the hot steam of sauna, saw a gorgeous sunset painting the sky pink and fell asleep to the sound of singing eurasian bittern. The day couldn’t have been more perfect.
How was your weekend?✨
  • A piece of this cinnamon roll wreath? Yes please!
I really hope I have some time for baking next weekend in the countryside. I try to keep my weekend as relaxing as possible, because next week is going to be insane! Long photoshoot days, five days in a row, so I’ll definitely need all the rest.
Do you have any (baking) plans for the weekend? 🥨🥐🍪🧁
  • Summer, please come already! I can’t wait for the warm days spent in the garden, in the shadows of the apple trees, reading a book and forgetting the whole world around me. No need to hurry when the only thing to worry about is whether to bake a cake or a pie for dessert.
Who else is waiting for the summer?
  • This day is dedicated to moms.🌸 The most powerful, loving, kindest and wisest people in this world.🌸 My mom has always been a strong and beautiful role model to me.
