The veggie garden is absolutely thriving this year, but it's still early for my tomatoes, so I'm really pleased to have these two. They're 'bloody butchers', one I haven't grown before and I have to say, that even though they are the only tomatoes ready, by a mile, the plant is and has always been peaky - I bought a second one, and it's exactly the same, so we shall see how they go. The greenhouse tomatoes and chillies are also growing like the clappers.
Anyway, tonight I am going to use up these 2 wee tomatoes and make Jamie Oliver's tomato coriander salsa to go with some hot smoked salmon. Yummy summer dinner.
Jamie's Tomato Coriander Salsa
(I've adapted the recipe for 2 people)
3 spring onions finely chopped
a teeny tiny amount of chopped chilli ( or loads depending on taste!)
lots of fresh coriander leaves
a bunch of fresh mint
juice of 1/4 lemon
juice of half a lime
salt and pepper
and with the exception of the salt and pepper absolutely EVERYTHING has come from the garden. Even the avocado I've added cos I love them!
