Dish history

Together with some nice crispy homemade bread, this recipe makes an ideal, complete meal for summer and spring days, when the weather is nice and you don't feel like cooking or eating a hot meal. At these times of the year tomatoes are in season too, and therefore tastier. But this salad can also be enjoyed as an appetiser or served to your guests at the end of a meal, as a light side-dish.
