Minimal Salad

By BlueRoom
Minimal Salad?.... OK, it's just a tomato... perhaps I ought to do some shopping. Smile

At this time of year it's difficult to remember how good these taste perfectly ripe and straight off the vine... and that distinctive smell too...

Not too sure about the clique
Nice one Eric - I wonder which will follow - depends probably on what Sainsbury's has in stock.

An EC!!! WoW. Thanks Pete.
And I've had this one on the computer for over a year wondering if it was quite good enough. Sad

Thanks for all your clicks and comments. They've come as a nice surprise.

What a fantastic stylistic image, Eric. Congrats on the (totally well-deserved) EC!

Now would this 'meal' be considered overindulgence by supermodels' standards? I mean, it IS more than HALF a tomato, you know...

Not even a whole tomato! The smell, by the way, is from the vine itself, which is why even the best tomatoes smell (and, therefore, taste) less good once they're off the vine.

Congrats on the EC!
