Method

  1. Preheat the oven. To caramelise the red onions, heat 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar in a saucepan over a low-medium heat. Add the red onions to the saucepan, cover and gently fry for 20 minutes, or until caramelised.
  2. Meanwhile, unroll the pastry and cut into 4 evenly-sized rectangles. Place on baking tray lined with baking parchment and score a border 1 cm from the edges with a sharp knife. Lightly prick the middle area with a fork. Brush with the beaten egg and set aside. Remember to keep an eye on the onions and stir them regularly.
  3. Add the tomatoes to the caramelised onion and cook for 5 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft. Remove from the heat and gently stir in the feta cheese.
  4. Divide the caramelised onions, tomatoes and feta between the pastry bases, avoiding the 1cm border and cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the underside is crisp and dry.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the vinaigrette by mixing together 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  6. Cook the potatoes in lightly salted water for 10 minutes, or until tender, to be ready at the same time as the tarts. Drain well and toss with 1 tbsp butter and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  7. Toss the salad leaves with the vinaigrette and serve immediately with the tarts and buttered new potatoes.
