You can never have too many tomato salads, and this one too epitomises Summer. The play of strawberries against tomatoes, the tartness of balsamic and the saltiness of parmesan is a surprisingly wonderful combination. Moreover, it is so very easy to throw this salad together. Fresh basil from the garden, even pick your own strawberries and tomatoes if you can, for a divine salad for lazy lunches.
