Heritage Tomatoes Salad

Make the most of gorgeously juicy Heritage tomatoes with this Amelia Freer salad recipe. The perfect summer side, it's packed with flavours of British summertime!


In order to make sure that this salad is as delicious as it can possibly be, it’s important to use the ripest tomatoes you can find. These have the most flavour and the best texture. If buying from a supermarket, buy them on the vine and leave them to really ripen in a bowl for a couple of days. Tomatoes increase our natural melanin production – essential for protecting our skin in the summer months. With added protein from the eggs, this dish not only looks delicious but will leave you perfectly satisfied.
