  • Recipes Simple and effective
    (18/01/2015) It is all of the different types of tomatoes which really make this salad! It looks so beautiful plated and is the perfect accompaniment to any BBQ meal. Everyone wants the recipe.
  • Recipes If you love tomatoes, you love this
    (04/01/2015) Admittedly, I am one of the biggest enemy of tomatoes, never letting one of the red beauties escape without being eaten. So this recipe is probably as close to food paradise as it gets for me.

    We had no pomegranate molasses, and it is hard to imagine how the salad could have become any more delicious than it was.

  • Recipes delicious salad
    (23/01/2014) i am addicted to pomegranate and this salad offers another delightful way to use them. use really fresh tomatoes to get the best out of this and try with parsely or mint if you don't have oregano and these all work to bring our the other ingredients.
  • Recipes Amazing aroma and flavours
    (07/08/2013) I made this last night to eat today and every time I opened the fridge door the aromas that wafted out were delectable. They set my mouth watering every time. The pomegranate molasses made a huge difference to this recipe so, although they might not be easy to buy locally, I recommend getting hold of them. You can of course buy them here on this site! The flavours of this did nothing to disappoint when I ate it tonight. I had this with the freekeh pilaff and a rare rack of lamb. Completely scrumptious and never have leftovers smelt so good in my fridge!
