1/2 cup
Olive oil (extra virgin)
2 tablespoons
Mirin (or honey)
1 tablespoon (to taste)

Steps

1. Parboil the tomatoes and peel the skins. Remove the seeds and cut into bite-sizes.
2. If you have corn on the cob, boil and remove the kernels. Finely julienne the shiso leaves.
3. Combine the vinegar, olive oil, mirin, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
