Once I have some Salsa Macha—the rich, peanut-and-chile salsa—on hand, it ends up in everything; it’s so good. Save this salad for summer, when you have the ripest tomatoes available. Unless, of course, you happen to be in Baja, when they are delicious midwinter, too!



In a large serving bowl, spoon big dollops of the salsa macha. Arrange some of the tomatoes on top, then spoon more salsa on top. Continue arranging, alternating with the remaining salsa and tomatoes.

Sprinkle with crunchy salt and drizzle with olive oil to add gloss and flavor.
