    Mikekey's Note:

    Murcia is a region in SE Spain, on the Mediterranean coast, where tomatoes are a major crop. The traditional way to make the dressing is using a mortar and pestle, but the blender simplifies the process.

    1. 1
      On a cutting board, smash the garlic cloves with the flat side of a butcher knife. Work a little salt into the garlic with the edge of the knife to make a paste. Place in a blender.
    2. 2
      Peel and coarsely chop one tomato and add it to the blender. Pulse the tomato together with the garlic, until well blended.
    3. 3
      Add the vinegar, pepper, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, and paprika to the blender and blend until smooth.
    4. 4
      Add the olive oil and blend to mix well with the rest of the ingredients.
    5. 5
      Cut the remaining tomatoes crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Arrange them on a serving platter single-layered or overlapping as little as possible.
    6. 6
      Pour the tomato vinaigrette over the sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with the remaining cumin seeds.
    7. 7
      Serve at room temperature.

      Well,,,,THE PICKY ONE loved this!!!dh hated it. I liked it lots. I think it was a bit cumin-heavy. It was so easy to make! Thank you for sharing. Made for ZWT8 Chefs Gone Wild.

      Oftentimes, the simplest things are the best. And this little dish is a case in point. It's fresh and easy to make; a great complement to the main dish - in this case Spanish Tortillas de Camaron for ZWT8. I would suggest using the best olive oil possible, because the taste comes through loud and clear. This is a great alternative to my everyday tomato-basil-olive oil routine! Thanks Mikekey, for a great find!
