Lime, Tomato And Coriander Salad

This is a really fresh-tasting salad, simple and easy.

It looks very pretty as the green of the coriander, lime zest and spring onion complements the red of the tomatoes.

It’s also good with avocado added.

It goes well with neolithic pie or with cauliflower cheese.
