Could hardly be simpler but it's delicious. I sliced ordinary tomatoes and thought the lemon zest lifted it to something special... Served it with Coronation chicken.

This was lovely, had a glut of cherry tomatoes that I have grown and I used them to make this salad. It was very flavoursome I served it with kofta kebabs and potato wedges.
