Tomato & Mint Salad

Ahh the summer sun, how beautiful it is and what better way to enjoy it than with a fresh and colourful simple summer salad.

The juicy tomatoes bursting with so much flavour is heavenly, plus it is also a great source of healthy antioxidants and vitamins, which is great especially if you are like me and do not take vitamins (even though I know I should) or forget to take them. 

Mint is great for the digestion, its beautiful strong smell is brilliant, especially if you have a headache it can help clear the head and it is also great as a tea as it can help settle your stomach.

I've used two great oils, olive oil which is a great source of Monounsaturated fats and which is really good for the skin and can help maintain cholesterol and rapeseed oil, which has the lowest saturated fats of any oil.

So that said, here is my recipe for this super quick tomato and mint salad. I hope you love it. 


300g Cherry tomatoes
Rapeseed oil
Olive oil
Handful of mint leaves

1. Start by halving your tomatoes into place to one side (obviously making sure before you start, all your ingredients are washed) in your mixing bowl. 

2. Roughly chop your mint and sprinkle over your cherry tomatoes.

3. Now drizzle your olive and rapeseed oil over your tomatoes.

And you're done!

What I like about this salad is, that it is super easy and fresh, plus it is a great dish to have one it's own with a nice glass of chilled wine or if at work great to have at your desk or even as a side dish. I promise.

Just what I need in this impressive British summertime heat. 

How are you cooling down this summer? Do you have any great dishes that you are making without turning on the oven?
