In the height of summer when tomatoes and cucumbers are plentiful, this chunky salad is a refreshing alternative to just serving a plate of sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. Avoid field cucumbers with seeds and of course mushy tomatoes or the salad will look like a dog’s breakfast instead of what you see in the picture. The most brilliant salads are minimal accompaniments to our meals and texture being just as important as the taste. Personally I think of mint as a toothpaste flavour and not as a kitchen herb. But a lot of people like mint and toss aside the parsley sprig which is why I included mint as an alternative to parsley. I have a sense that mint could work with this salad if you liked mint.

3 ripe but firm Roma tomatoes, diced
1 English cucumber, diced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, chopped
small bunch of parsley or mint
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

• Chop the vegetables and the fresh herb of your choice.
• Place in a salad bowl and sprinkle it with lemon juice and olive oil.
• Season with salt and pepper, gently toss.
• Let the flavours mingle for half an hour and then serve.
