a summer staple…

This is a recipe for Tomato Salad that I first tasted at my brother’s place a few years ago & I’ve been making it ever since.  Today I’m sharing the love. It’s a summer staple & in keeping with my food philosophy for this blog – a total cinch!  In fact, it’s quite possible Jamie Oliver will include this one in his next cookbook venture – 2 Minute Meals.  It takes only a few (more than 2) minutes to prepare so leave it until just before serving.

get this:

a whole bunch of tomatoes either standard garden variety or mix it up with an all-sorts arrangement – 1/2 spanish onion – juice of 1 or 2 limes – a big pinch of good quality salt – 1/2 bunch of fresh coriander

and do this with it:

Finely slice the onion and place on the bottom of your salad bowl.  Cut/slice/chop the tomatoes and place into the bowl.  Chop up your coriander & throw in on top.  Sprinkle in your salt & squeeze in the juice of the lime.  Mix it all up & check your seasoning before serving – maybe it’ll need another hit of lime or a bit more salt or even more coriander if you’re mad about it.  I am.

Hard to believe that a salad without a drop of oil or vinegar in sight can taste this good, but it does…

Enjoy – once you’ve made this once you’ll always make it!
