Quick Tomato Salad

Tomato Salad.jpgUse the best of the summer’s tomatoes in this delicious, herby tomato salad. I served mine with lamb fillet marinated in garlic, rosemary & lemon & some buttered new potatoes. But it’s perfect on it’s own, served with some crusty fresh bread to mop up the juices. The perfect simple supper.


  • One or two large tomatoes
  • A handful of cherry tomatoes ( I used red & yellow from my mum’s garden)
  • Handful of flat leaf parsley
  • 2-3 basil leaves (I used purple basil from the garden)
  • A few chives
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Chop your tomatoes how ever you please, I sliced mine in big thin slices & halved my cherry tomatoes.
  2. Roughly chop your herbs, and add these to a bowl with the tomatoes
  3. In a cup, lightly whisk your vinegar and olive oil, and season to taste. You can add more oil/vinegar to suit your taste. I like mine quite sharp.
  4. Add this to your tomatoes & herbs and mix together. Add more seasoning if it needs it.
  5. Place into your serving dish & enjoy!

Borough Market 8th November 2014

Food, Photography

I revisited Borough Market on the 8th November, after reflecting on the images I took on my previous trip. I figured I wanted to continue with my theme of photographing singular ingredients and displaying these for an exhibition project for my third year degree show. I took some more successful images to add to my portfolio, and will continue to visit and shoot here to extend the collection.

Again the sights, smells and atmosphere was incredible, and it reminded me of my love of food, and cooking and the feeling it gives me.

I ate some bread and another doughnut, from Bread Ahead, and have considered booking myself on to one of there cooking schools. Got in to the christmas spirit with a warm mulled apple juice and headed to Tower of London to see the poppies for Remembrance Sunday. This too was incredible and ended a lovely day out in London.

In the evening, I went to my local firework display and had family friends over in the evening for food and drink, which is a regular occurrence in our house. You can read about this here.

Below are some of the images shot from this day at the market.
