2 lbs (907 g) assorted small colourful cherry tomatoes, halved
3 cups (750 ml) coarsely chopped Campari tomatoes
3 tbsp (45 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp (10 ml) lemon zest

  1. On a cutting board, using a large heavy knife, mash garlic and salt into a paste, then transfer to a large serving bowl. Add cherry tomatoes, Campari tomatoes, lemon juice and zest, vinegar, oil, pepper, parsley, thyme, jalapeño, shallot, capers, basil and Fior di Latte. Mix well to combine and let sit, loosely covered, for about 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.
