    Default Tomato Salad

    1 kg tomatoes ( I prefer Roma , but others are fine too)

    1 cup cold pressed Extra virgin olive oil

    1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

    1-3 cloves of fresh garlic

    1/4-1/2 teaspoon of black ground pepper corns

    1/2-1 table spoon of salt

    Shallots (1-2 stalkes)

    Parsley (a bunch)

    You can repalce with any other herb ( Basil works really well too)

    Dice the tomatoes into small squares.

    Dice the garlic finely.

    The parsley and shallots can be left into bigger pieces, as they give a nice colour against the red.

    Put everything together in a bowl and mix.

    Add the Olive oil and Lemon juice to the mix.

    Season with Black pepper and Salt.

    This salad gets better when it sits in the fridge for a few hours before serving , as the flavours will soften and melt together.

    A very good dish when feeling rundown and you need a 'pick me up'.
    It keeps well in the fridge.


    If using store tomatoes, I place them on the window sill to get them to ripen and get a nice deep red colour, before making this salad.

    It's a good one ,as the acidity in the tomatoes is neutralised by the lemon that's alkaline. A good way of getting Lycopene that's in the tomatoes, good for the skin , heart ,etc...a perfect salad after a hard training session, as it helps to resotre the body from dehydration, with bonus of the extra virgin olive oil...
