Simple Tomato Herb Salad

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Sackville

This is a basic tomato salad that's great with just about any summer meal. I must say all these measurements are a bit of a guess. I don't measure anything, but just drizzle the olive oil and vinegar in until it "looks right" and tastes good too! You need really fresh, juicy flavourful tomatoes to make this salad work. A bit of feta cheese is a nice addition.

I was lucky enough to make this..drum roll please..for Sackville! Yes. it's true..Sackville and her hubby have been cycling round the world and in March 2009 they came to our house and camped in our back yard...I had organised a barbecue and decided to make a couple of her recipes. This is a very easy salad to put together and the flavours are great, I added crumbled feta before serving. Delicious.
