As a side for my Steak and Potatoes dinner on Friday night, I made the best salad. Simple and tasty, the main flavour comes from having great ingredients.

Tomato and Red Pepper Salad

Tomato and Red Pepper Salad

  • Selection of salad leaves
  • Fresh basil leaves, I used around 5 tiny ones from the plant I have on my windowsill.
  • 2 tomatoes, look for vibrantly red ones, or ones on the vine.
  • 1 red pepper, diced.
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice

METHOD

  1. Wash the salad leaves, basil, tomatoes and pepper. Rip the lettuce into more bite sized chunks, and tear the basil.
  2. Thinly slice the tomatoes, and dice the red pepper.
  3. Add the veg to a large bowl. Then add the vinegar, lemon and olive oil, thoroughly coat the veg in the dressing and serve.
