Tomato salad with ravioli and fresh basil
A simple and delicious method to use the tomatoes from your greenhouse. A cold pasta dish that reminds you of a summer in Italy. It is of course an option to make homemade ravioli, but if you want to keep it easy, you can buy ravioli in most supermarkets.
Serves 4 (if served as a side) or 2 (if served as a main dish)
- 400 g small tomatoes (for example in different colours)
- 1 small red onion
- 200 g ravioli pasta
- A bunch of fresh basil
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of white wine vinegar
- ½ teaspoon of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of maple sirup
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- Freshly ground pepper
Cook the ravioli in slightly salted water after instructions on the packaging. Finely chop the red onion and half the tomatoes. Chop the basil finely as well. Make a quick vinaigrette out of olive oil, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, sirup, salt and pepper.
Turn the cooked ravioli in the vinaigrette and let it cool for 5-10 min. Add the tomatoes, onion, and basil. Garnish with extra basil on top. The pasta salad is served cold to your favourite dish.
