  • 2 cups assorted color Heirloom tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper

  • Peel and dice the potatoes and place in a small bowl. Blanch the potatoes lightly in salted water and rinse in ice water to keep the color.

  • To serve, add the remaining torn fresh basil, and serve immediately on a large platter.
