Kept this free of the chillis (served them separately) and it was a nice, colourful side dish with the pulled lamb.

To serve 6-8 you need very large tomatoes. I used 4 medium ones and it barely was enough for 6. I will add the extra suggestions the next time. But tasted good.

This salad looks lovely and was very tasty. I only used half a green chilli and took the seeds out so it wasn't too strong.

Lovely side dish - would also work well with poppadoms, as well as with the Curried Pulled Lamb in the Sept 15 article. Followed the ingredients (except used a little chilli powder in lieu of cayenne) and instructions and tasty so fresh. Used our own garden grown tomatoes which worked well and taste better than shop bought - would suggest you get good quality tomatoes for best flavour and cherry toms would work well too.
