This is a quick roasted cherry tomato salad that my daughter and I enjoyed on toast for dinner last night. The main ingredients are from my little veggie patch so it was not only delicious but very satisfying, especially when I was asked to go and make another batch for seconds.
The cherry tomatoes are almost the last of this year’s crop and the basil comes from the patch too. I am hoping I can keep the basil going for a little while longer yet but I am busily stashing leaves away in the freezer to give us a little taste of the summer months in the winter to come.
