AT A GLANCE
Pickled anchovies can be polarising; classic Cantabrian-style salted anchovy fillets would also work well here.
4 yellow oxheart tomatoes, thickly sliced
1 fennel bulb, shaved, fronds reserved
16 pickled white anchovies (see note)
2 tbsp each coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley, basil and dill
- Champagne vinegar dressing
2 tbsp Champagne vinegar
1 garlic clove, grated on a microplane
Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp each extra-virgin olive oil and sunflower oil, plus extra to serve
To serve: crusty white bread
||For Champagne vinegar dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl, season to taste, and set aside.
||Arrange tomatoes on a platter, then top with fennel and anchovies, scatter herbs and reserved fennel fronds over, drizzle with Champagne vinegar dressing and serve with crusty bread.
Note Pickled white anchovies are available from
David Jones food halls and select delicatessens.
