tomato salad

An absolute classic, timelessly tasty and always popular with friends.  At its most basic, tomatoes and basil, but here I’ve added in a little crumbled feta.

We ate our salads with cheese – a Danish blue cheese called Castello (available from -the dreaded- supermarket) and a sheep’s cheese called Brebirousse Argental (one of my absolute favourites and available from Barbakan Deli in Manchester).

To finish it off we had a plate of slightly toasted Polish black bread, that we rubbed with garlic and smeared with olive oil. 

Yum yum yum.
