Zingy tomato salad

This is a very simple but tasty salad that is a wonderful side dish to a meal. I have had it for lunch the last two days with my home made seed bread and eggs, and it was really wonderful. I used baby Roma tomatoes that had been grown on the vine and they were so delicious and sweet. My own tomatoes are coming along nicely but need a few more weeks of the hot Australian sunshine to be ready to pick.

Place the following ingredients in a nice bowl and mix:

8 small truss baby Roma tomatoes (or a smaller quantity of larger ones) diced

1 Lebanese cucumber diced (wash well and leave the skin on)

2 spring onions. I only use the green tops which l chopped finely

The juice of a small lemon

Some herbs chopped up. I had mint and basil in the garden and the taste was nice. If l had some flat leaf parsley l would have put that in also.

Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste.

Cover with some cling wrap and store in the fridge until required.
