Scallop's meat is very tasty and gentle, but all these lovely characteristics will be lost with thermal cooking. The best way to preserve this taste is to marinade scallops in the vegetable juice. This salad will be cooked from sliced scallops and therefore there is no point to use expensive king scallops, but it is better and cheaper to use queen scallops.

Tomatoes. 200 gm. Choose the sweetest, ripest tomatoes.
Coriander. One medium bunch.
Olive oil. 2-3 tbsp.
White wine vinegar. 1 tbsp.
