“I AM a terrible cook. I can only do very basic things, but I love tomatoes and could eat them every day. I also like avocados.” – Television and radio personality Gareth Cliff

Gareth Cliffs' Salad For One!


TAKE one or two tomatoes. Dice them into small chunks – about the size of your thumb. Alternatively, use a handful of mixed baby tomatoes and halve them. Take the avo and cut into quarters which you then dice to match the size of the tomato chunks. Season with salt, pepper and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Arrange it all in a nice bowl with the lettuce and garnish with some fresh basil leaves. Ta-daaaa! Isn’t that great?
