Our garden pots of tomatoes are in full bloom and we have managed to pluck enough to use in our daily cooking and salads and some. This evening’s salad was predominantly garden fresh cherry tomatoes with cucumber, salad leaves and feta cheese. It was dressed with a Dijon mustard vinaigrette and then finished off with some fresh figs and toasted walnuts. All in all both of us enjoyed the fruits of our labour and look forward to experimenting with new dressings to compliment our garden fresh tomatoes.
