A simple tomato salad with flavours inspired by Mexican-style Pico de Gallo salsa, the perfect side dish for any summertime Mexican or Tex-mex inspired meal.

  • sea salt
  • 1/2 small banana shallot
  • 1 small jalapeño
  • small handful fresh coriander
  • extra virgin olive oil


  1. Thinly slice the tomatoes and arrange them on a serving dish. Sprinkle with sea salt and set aside.
  2. Peel and finely chop the shallot. De-seed the jalapeño and finely dice. Chop the coriander.
  3. Sprinkle the shallot, jalapeño and the coriander over the salad before drizzling generously with olive oil before serving. 


This salad can be made a couple of hours ahead, but be sure to serve at room temperature.
