  • About

Well-flavoured ripe tomatoes are a must for this dish; summer is the best time to make it but decent tomatoes are available in winter if you shop around.


  • 1.5 kg seasonal tomatoes, plum, beef, cherry or golden
  • 100


Cut the tomatoes into different shapes - halves, wedges, and either whole or halved if they are cherry tomatoes. Arrange them on plates or in a bowl and pour over both dressings, so that they remain separate. Season, and scatter torn basil leaves over the top.
