tomato salad

First of all, Eid Mubarak to all muslims. This is the second eid we celebrate.  Had a nice week, no tantrums from little one  and hubby having finished exams means work around the house is a little bit easier  with him taking his share of work  around the house.The internet stopped me from catching up with the blogging world, and after 4-5  days of no internet connection finally got  it back today!!! yey ! so will hopefully get back with you guys soon.  :)
Dont you just love tomatoes! I love tomatoes especially cherry and grape tomatoes.  I  made this lovely salad for our eid lunch with friends and it went down quite well.

1 punnet cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
1 medium ripe tomato, roughly chopped.
1 shallot or a small red onion, finely chopped
juice of 1 lime or half a lemon
a green chilli, finely sliced( optional)
a good handful of fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
extra virgin olive oil or plain olive oil
salt and pepper

1. Place chopped onion in a bowl with lime or lemon juice and pinch or salt. Give a good scrunch and set it aside to release its juices and go nice and limp. about 10 minutes.

2. While thats place tomatoes,  chili if using and coriander leaves into a salad bowl . Pour the onion and lime mixture on top and carefully mix with your finger tips . Taste , adjust seasoning, and a drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil and chill for about 10 minutes before serving .
