Fresh pale green lemongrass gives a wonderful lemony scent and flavour to dishes but must be sliced paper-thin because of its woody texture. Look for it in supermarkets and Asian grocery stores; if you can't find it, substitute 1 tsp (5 mL) grated lemon rind for one stalk.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lemongrass
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tsbp lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 6 yellow tomatoes
  • coriander leaves

Method

Cut off bottom third of lemongrass; peel off outside layer and slice stalk paper-thin. In small bowl, whisk together lemongrass, shallots, lemon rind and juice, garlic, salt and cayenne pepper. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours; whisk before using.)

Cut each tomato into 8 wedges. Place in large bowl; pour dressing over top and gently toss to coat. Garnish with coriander leaves.
