6 plum tomatoes
Juice of ½ lemon
Small handful mint
Salt and pepper to season
1 clove Garlic
2 tsp Olive oil
15g crushed walnuts
4 slices good quality crusty bread


1. Remove the skins from the tomato by scoring a small cross in the top and placing them in boiled water for 1 min. Peel away the skins.

2. Cut the tomatoes into quarters and remove the seeds. Then finely chop.

3. Finely chop the mint and combine in a bowl with the tomato and lemon juice. Lightly season.

4. Toast the bread under the grill. If you like garlic flavours, crush a clove of garlic with the side of  a knife and rub over the bread once cooked.

5. Spoon the tomato mix over the toasted bread, sprinkle with crushed walnuts.

Drizzle with a very small amount of olive oil if desired.

If you are feeling lazy, in a rush, or don’t feel your chopping skills are up to it. blitz the mint in a food processor before adding tomatoes (with skin on), lemon and seasoning then blitz very briefly.
