Recipe: Summer Salad

When the weather gets warmer I prefer to eat more salads and sandwiches rather than warm, cooked food. At the moment one of my favourite recipes is "tomato-strawberry-salad". I know this combination sounds a little strange but I promise, it tastes lovely.

The sweetness of the strawberries and the nuttiness of the olive oil balance out the sharper flavour of the tomatoes.

Ingredients: (one portion)

- three big tomatoes

- eight strawberries

- 3 tbsp olive oil

- a dash of apple cider vinegar

- fresh basil to taste

- fresh mint to taste

Slice the tomatoes and strawberries. Mix them with the olive oil and vinegar in a bowl.

Add the basil and mint. This is so simple and your taste buds will be very happy.

This tastes especially lovely with toasted sourdough bread. Enjoy!
