The Autumn glut of tomatoes sees me finding ways to use them, as well as popping as many as I can into the freezer. Although the weather is cooler in the mornings and evenings, salads are still on our home menu each day. Sometimes they are snacks, perhaps with some flatbread, sometimes they accompany a meal, sometimes they are the meal.
A quick salad this morning with sweet vine-ripened tomatoes fresh from the garden, tossed together with some green olives. Divine, the tang of the olives against the sweet tomatoes.

Tomato Salad with Green Olives
Arrange some sliced tomatoes on a plate or platter and scatter with pitted green olives and some soft chickpeas (optional). Sprinkle with some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle with a vinaigrette made with sherry vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.
