This is one of the nicest summer salads, yet it is also one of the simplest. Serve with any meat or fish dish or with cheese-based quiches. Tomato salad also makes an excellent starter when served with garlic bread. If fresh basil is not available, use fresh parsley instead.

  • 3/4 lb tomatoes skinned, seeded and sliced
  • 1 tbsp grated onion

For the dressing:

  • 8 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove halved
  • 7 tsp freshly chopped basil
  • 1 tsp spoon caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Arrange the tomatoes in a shallow serving dish and sprinkle with the grated onion.
  • To prepare the dressing, put all the ingredients, with pepper to taste, in a screw-top jar and shake vigorously until thoroughly mixed.
  • Leave to stand for at least 30 minutes to allow the garlic and basil to flavour the dressing. Remove garlic before using.
  • Pour the dressing over the tomatoes. Chill in the refrigerator before serving, spooning over the dressing from time to time.
  • NOTE: the dressing can be kept in the jar for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
