Print Tomato and wild garlic dressing

This very quick dressing or sauce is a good one if you've got wild garlic in your box, or have managed to forage a bunch along the wayside. It's excellent poured over white fish or chicken, or with a steaming bowl of grain or pasta. You could add a little garlic, basil, toasted pine nuts.


  • 2 tomatoes
  • 4 wild garlic leaves, shredded
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of ½ lemon (more to taste)
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Cut a little cross on the top of the tomatoes. Place in a large bowl or saucepan, pour over boiling water and leave for 30 seconds.
  2. Remove from the hot water and plunge into a bowl of cold water. Peel off the skins; they should come away quite easily.
  3. Quarter the tomatoes and remove the seeds. Cut into thin strips lengthways.
  4. Place in a small saucepan with the wild garlic leaves. Add the olive oil, lemon juice and season to taste.
  5. Warm gently, taste and add a little more lemon juice if needed.
