After making this, all I can say is... I'm in love with tomato tartare. Seriously, this was so unexpectedly amazing (I mean, how good can cold green beans and tomatoes be?), I was almost ready to trade my husband in for the ability to eat the whole thing. Instead, I settled with the measly little bite of amazing tomato tartare.
Not only was this super tasty, it was rather easy. I started with some roasted tomato petals (conveniently left over from the blini), balsamic, shallot, and chives
Chopped all up and combined... making "tomato tartare."
Next, green beans:
I trimmed, cut, blanched the green beans
Not pictured: right before serving, I whisked the heck out of some cream (and maybe creme fraiche? Its been a while), and tossed the green beans in. Because they were cold, it actually helped the whipped cream stay together.
Plating: a little chive oil, tomato, green beans, and dental floss... I mean frisee... with a little tomato powder down the side.
