Two tomato salads, for when you're lucky enough to get some good tommies

Method

 

  • Slice or cut the tomatoes into halves or quarters – depending on the size.
  • Place half of the prepared tomatoes into a large bowl and add the capers, gherkins, chives, red onion, Italian parsley and seasonings. Then dress with a slurp of the oil and sherry vinegar.
  • Mound the salad on individual plates and serve with grilled (or toasted) Turkish or sourdough bread.
  • For the second salad, toss the remaining tomatoes with the basil, mozzarella, a splash of vinegar, quite a lot of seasonings and a slurp of oil.
  • To serve, lay the prosciutto along a plate and spoon the tomato salad alongside.
