I like to make this when tomatoes are in season. We have a weekly food market in our area, and I buy my tomatoes from there, which come from the Isle of Wight. I love all the varieties and colours. Adding the nuts and fruit to this salad gives it some extra zing.


  • 1 kg mixed tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp sumac
  • a drizzle of good olive oil


Cut all the tomatoes to similar-sized pieces. If using cherry tomatoes, cut them in half and cut the larger ones into similar-sized chunks. Place in a bowl, sprinkle with sumac, drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt.

Sprinkle over the mint leaves and then drizzle with tahini. Add any of your chosen extras before serving.
