Before you know it, it will be tomato season. We have some in our greenhouse! There’s nothing quite as fresh and tasty as a tomato and cucumber salad. It’s especially good when served with a handful of toasted seeds (not shown in this picture) on top and a wine vinegar dressing. Crunchy, fresh, sharp.
You will need:
- 1/2 a cucumber sliced
- 2 tomatoes sliced (or 12 cherry tomatoes chopped in half)
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp white or red wine vinegar
- a sprinkle of dried oregano
- Salt & pepper
- 1 handful of a mixture of pumpkin and sunflower seeds toasted in a dry pan
Toast the seeds in a dry pan until they turn golden brown. Make the dressing with the oil, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper. Toss the tomato and cucumber with the dressing and serve topped with the seeds.
