Can't comment on the tartine, but I used the tomato salad recipe to spotlight some particularly wonderful cherokee purples and yellow tomatoes that we were getting at the farmers market. This is the essence of simplicity for a tomato salad but it is still exquisite. I'd assume this would be good with almost any good, dynamic tomato with strong flavor. Really, if you're looking for an easy side dish that makes great use of top-notch fresh tomatoes then this is a winner.

couldn't find serrano so used leftover proscuitto. delicious and so easy. Dinner was on the table in literally five minutes. didn't make the salad. served instead with browned butter asparagus also from CL. Now I know how to use up my extra proscuitto! Would be good on sourdough too if you don't have ciabatta.
