Yellow Tomatoes in Spiced Balsamic Vinaigrette

Photo: Karry Hosford
Yield 10 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
Yellow tomatoes have a low level of acidity, so they taste sweeter than most red tomatoes. Balsamic vinegar brings out the sweetness and adds a mild acidity. Use high-quality vinegar, since this recipe calls for quite a bit. Serve with steak, lamb, or salmon.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 8 medium yellow tomatoes, each cut into 6 wedges (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
