Tomato Herb Tartine

Serves two good friends or two acquaintances in separate rooms

2 slices artisan bread
2 T butter
3 T extra virgin olive oil, divided
Maldon sea salt
2 to 3 heirloom tomatoes, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 c herb salad (you may substitute arugula, mâché or roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley with basil, dill or herbs of your choice)
1 T champagne vinegar
Fresh black pepper
1/8 t Secret Stash Salt Coconut Garam Masala salt – or – their rosemary lavender salt
5 paper napkins

In a medium bowl toss together tomatoes, vinegar, 2 T of olive oil, garlic, pepper and toss well. Let sit while you prepare the toasts.

In a large heavy skillet over medium heat, melt the butter until foamy and add the remaining 1 T olive oil, then swirl pan. Add the bread slices and sauté until very golden brown. Turn and repeat on other side. Remove to a plate and sprinkle bread with Maldon salt.

Add herb salad to tomato mixture, toss gently, and spoon generously on toasts. Sprinkle with Secret Stash Salt, cut into 3 pieces (if desired) and eat slowly with lots of napkins.

To my taste the coconut garam masala was fantastic, although the rosemary lavender was delicious too. I think you should try them both too and see which you prefer.
