TOMATO SALAD WITH COCONUT SNOW (Salade de tomates et neige de coco)

TOMATO SALAD WITH COCONUT SNOW
(Salade de tomates et neige de coco)

Winter with a summer note !!! This is what we can call a "wow factor" salad or amuse-bouches when it is presented to your guests... I served this marvel in a very lovely verrine for a buffet and it was exquisite (no less...). It is so easy to make that you may even try it tonight or tomorrow just for yourself!!!


Wine pairing : Vin-de-Thouarsais (Red) from The Loire Valley.
