Nothing beats a sun-kissed, just-picked, juicy ripe tomato, especially one you grew yourself. Now in abundance and perfectly sweet they have to be one of summers simplest foodie pleasures. Stroll around your local farmers market and you are bound to come across several varieties, shapes and colours: red, purple, yellow, green, striped, black etc.
Tomatoes have excellent antioxidant content, including Vit C, beta-carotene, vitamin E and the mineral manganese, among many other nutrients.
This fantastic salad is so simple to make and delicious to eat on its own, best mopped up with fresh sourdough bread or toasted ciabatta.
