DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and dry tomatoes, do not peel.
  • Slice each in half, and then, with the flat sides on a wooden board, slice in the length and then across again -- into small chunks.
  • Slice and chop the onion in the same way.
  • Mix in a salad bowl.
  • Add the three flavourings and mix well.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and leave to stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Eat as is -- to get that wonderful flavour of sunripened tomatoes and soft, sweet onion!
  • Or you can drizzle over some vinaigrette which is not acidic. (That will spoil the fresh, simple, down-home tastes).
