Carpaccio of yellow tomatoes, gaspacho of onion & lemon, avocado, black olives and watermelon

For 4 persons


  • 2 yellow tomatoes


  • 2 sweet onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • thyme
  • olive oil
  • black pepper from the mill and sea salt


  • 1/8 watermelon seedless
  • 1 avocado
  • 8 kalamati olives stoned
  • lemon zest
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme

Gaspacho : finely chop the onion and garlic, add water, a few drops of olive oil and lemon juice until they are ¾ under. Season with thyme, black pepper from the mill and sea salt. Put away in a cool place for approx. 2 hours. Remove and mix.

Yellow tomatoes: cut very thinly like a carpaccio. Divide over a flat dish or plates.

Garnishes: dice the watermelon, olives and avocado.

Finishing: spoon the gaspacho over the tomato carpaccio. Divide the watermelon, avocado and olive cubes over the preparation. Finish with grated zest of the lemon, fresh thyme and a few drops of olive oil.

The avocado is in. Is it its texture, its beautiful colour, its health benefits or is it its taste that does it! Important is that it is ripe, and then it is a source of many good things, including the creative possibilities on the plate.
