With the glut of ripe tomatoes in my garden, lovingly planted and cherished during lockdown (not by me), what could be better than a big bowlful with spicy chorizo, shallots and olives with peppery olive oil?
6-8 tomatoes, cut into bite-size pieces
1 banana shallot, peeled and finely sliced
1 chorizo cooking sausage, cooked according to pack instructions, and sliced, reserving 1 1/2 tbsp of the cooking fat
Handful of olives
1 tbsp Spanish sherry vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (@cycladi #gifted)
Sea salt and black pepper
Soak the sliced shallot in cold water for a few minutes to mellow the flavour.
Mix everything together and serve with crusty bread.
