This is such as a simple salad and could be made with any tomatoes, but these gorgeous heirloom tomatoes were just too beautiful to walk past. As you are all probably aware, I make a lot of dishes with tomatoes! I know H is going to love it and I get so much joy watching him enjoying good food. This salad was no exception. H was ready in his high chair while I was getting the other dishes on the table, and like most nights he likes to serve the salad or vegetable dish. Unfortunate for us (myself and my mum) he had eaten a quarter of the salad and had taken a bite out of all the tomatoes that remained by the time we sat down, and all of the blueberries were gone – it’s a good thing he’s cute!
