Basil & Tomato Salad

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by JustJanS

I promise this is one of the nicest ways to enjoy quality tomatoes and basil. Like I say, don't make this if you can't get hold of home-grown or vine-ripened tomatoes. It's not worth doing. And don't use your tomatoes from the fridge.

Jan, this is such a simple recipe, but it is one of the best! You have to have the best tomatoes and fresh basil to make a go of it. I have been haunting my farmer's market buying the most wonderful tomatoes. We have had this dish many times during the summer. The taste can't be beat. Thanks!
