I made this delicious, simple salad last night from Jo Seagar's latest book and it was divine. The publishers have kindly allowed me to reproduce it here.
THAI TOMATO SALAD
A lovely salad, beautifully flavoured and coloured, which looks great served in avocado halves.
Prep Time 5 minutes
1 punnet cherry tomatoes, cut in halves or quarters (approximately 2 cups)
½ small red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped, or ½ teaspoon medium-hot chilli paste
large handful of coriander, including the stalks, roughly chopped
grated rind & juice of 1 lime
2 teaspoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
2–3 firm but ripe avocados to serve
Place all the salad ingredients except the avocados in a bowl and mix together.
Halve the avocados, remove the stones and fill the holes with tomato salad. There will be enough to fill 6 halves. Serve straight away.
