  • About


  • 6 very ripe, firm tomatoes
  • salt and freshly ground pepper and sugar
  • French dressing (see Billys French Dressing)


Slice the tomatoes into 3 or 4 rounds through the centre. Arrange in a single layer on a flat plate. Sprinkle with salt, several grinds of pepper and sugar. Toss immediately in just enough French dressing to coat, and sprinkle with chopped basil or mint. Taste for seasoning. Tomatoes must be dressed immediately they are cut to seal in their flavour.
