Claire Wright from shares 3 simple ways to prepare tomatoes that the whole family will enjoy.

A Greek salad is a great light lunch or side for a big meal in the spring/summer months. And it is really easy to make, too!


Dice the tomatoes, onion and cucumber and small as you can. Halve the olives and mix with the diced veg and crumbled feta in a large bowl.

To make the dressing, add the mustard, lemon juice and olive oil to a lidded jar. Season with the oregano and some salt & pepper, then screw on the lid of the jar and shake well until combined and thickened. Pour over the veg and sprinkle with the parsley just before serving. Once you’ve dressed the salad, serve it as soon as possible for the best taste and texture.

Dice up the vegetables, then show them how to halve the olives with their hands and carefully chop the parsley with scissors. Get them to mix the ingredients together, and let them take charge of the dressing, adding the ingredients and shake-shake-shaking the jar when the lid is on tight. Have them pour over the dressing and sprinkle with the parsley.
