  • 3 beef tomatoes
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp tarragon vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch brown sugar
  • 2 tsp finely chopped fresh mint
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper

This salad is unusual but it’s always a firm favourite. It’s refreshing and it has a lovely sharp flavour enhanced by the fresh mint and Dijon mustard – and best of all, you can throw it together in just a few minutes, with ingredients most of us have knocking about at home.


Step 1

Turn the tomatoes on their side and cut them into slices about 5cm thick. Arrange in overlapping, concentric circles on a plate.

Step 2

Trim and clean the spring onions. Cut in half lengthways and then slice on the diagonal. Scatter over the tomatoes.

Step 3

Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a jug and drizzle over the salad.

Step 4

Serve immediately with crusty white bread.
