Three Tomato Salad with Capers and Olives

This is a fresh tomato salad and is perfect for summers day.  Or most days in Dubai!  Make sure the tomatoes are ripe and flavourful.  There is something about a bright, colourful plate of food that is so appealing to me.   And this is a great side dish for a bbq too!


2 tspn small capers

2 large ripe Beef tomatoes

3 ripe Plum tomatoes

125g red or yellow cherry tomatoes

40g black olives, ideally stoned

4 tblspn extra virgin olive oil

2 tbslpn lemon juice

1 tspn Dijon mustard (I use wholegrain but regular is okay too)

1/4 tspn thin honey

salt and pepper

handful of basil leaves


  • Thinly slice the Beef tomatoes and arrange in overlapping slices on a large plate.  Slice the plum tomatoes lengthwise and arrange on top.  Halve the cherry tomatoes and place in the centre of the plate.
  • Scatter the olives and capers over the tomatoes.
  • Mix the lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, Dijon mustard and honey in a bowl.  Season.
  • Drizzle the dressing over the tomatoes.  Cover and leave to stand for 30 minutes for the flavours to infuse.
  • Scatter the basil leaves over the dish.
  • Eat and enjoy!
