Isn’t the best thing in the world a fresh, ripe, just picked tomato?

But these guys don’t eat salad, he said. We’ll see!
I sliced the tomatoes into bite-sized pieces, added some fresh basil from the garden (both purple and mini basil), grated some fresh garlic (also from my garden), EVOO (from our neighbours Tom and Iona – it’s from his Dad’s olive grove in Greece!) and some wonderful balsamic.
