Recipes from the Dominican Republic - A Trio of Tomato

Chef's tips

This very simple recipe offers 3 textures and 3 different flavours, all using tomato. Each guest will have three little tasting glasses. For the granita, it's best to put the glasses into the freezer an hour before serving, and you could even put the granita into the glasses just before your guests arrive.

Ingredients - serves 4


  1. Divide the tomatoes into three equal portions.
  2. Combine a third of the tomato with the onion, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper. Set aside in a cool place.
  3. In a blender, purée a third of the tomato with the tarragon, salt and pepper. Place in the freezer and mix gently every hour with a fork to create the granita.
  4. Emulsion: At the last minute, in an electric blender mix the remaining third of the tomatoes with the arugula, balsamic vinegar, milk, salt and pepper. The mixture should be frothy.


  1. Divide each of the preparations into 4 small glasses.
  2. Place the trio on a plate and serve immediately.
