Tomato + Basil + Mozzarella + Sea Salt
Why it works: This classic combo is ideally balanced. The tomatoes bring acid, the basil offers an herbaceous zing, and mozzarella adds creaminess. Sea salt amplifies all the flavors.
Tomato + Watermelon
Why it works: Like a wacky fruit salad (yes, tomatoes are fruits!), the juicy watermelon in this late-summer salad coaxes out tomato's subtle sweetness.
Tomato + Chianti Wine
Why it works: Notoriously hard to pair with wine, tomato's high acid content balances with Chianti, a light-to-medium-bodied red wine that contains notes of dried fruit.
