Text excerpted from PLENTY MORE © 2017 by Yotam Ottolenghi ||| I cooked a recipe similar to this in Sardinia when I shot my Mediterranean Island Feast series last year. I was performing in front of two cameras and our small crew when suddenly a bunch of chirpy Aussie ladies arrived to check into the tiny hotel of my host, Robert Flore, in the remote Monte Ferru mountains. By coincidence, they had come straight from London, which they had visited especially in order to eat in the restaurants of their favorite chef; that chef turned out to be your humble servant. The raucous exhilaration was hard to contain, but it did, I must admit, seriously boost my performance. There’s nothing like a noisy home crowd! Seek out the sweetest tomatoes you can for this salad in order to balance the bitterness of the lemon. You can bulk it up, as I did in Sardinia, by adding lots more leaves and fresh herbs and some cooked fregola. This will turn the salad into a whole meal. Otherwise, serve it with oven-roasted potatoes or panfried fish.
