Bread And Tomato Salad

Nothing could be quicker, easier or more delicious than this typical Spanish salad. Followed by fresh fruit and a piece of cheese it?s an instant summer meal bursting with Mediterranean sunshine. This salad only works with really ripe tomatoes and stale course wholemeal or country bread.

Ripe tomatoes are rich in the essential nutrient lycopene which protects against prostate and breast cancer as well as heart disease. The bread provides B vitamins and essential fibre, the onions and garlic help lower cholesterol and basil is one of the most calming and mood enhancing of all the herbs.

4 thick slices of bread, cubed (crusts removed)
2 cloves of garlic chopped
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
6 ripe plum tomatoes
1 sliced red onion
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Handful torn fresh basil leaves
Seasoning

Heat the oil and add garlic and bread. Stir till bread becomes crispy. Remove with a slotted and drain on kitchen paper. Wash and roughly chop the tomatoes. Put the bread cubes into a bowl; add the tomatoes, onions, lemon juice, plenty of freshly milled black pepper and a pinch of coarse sea salt, and the basil. Toss well.
