This one has to be simple, it’s for eating with curries.
Finely chopped tomato
Finely chopped shallot/red onion
Freshly ground pepper
MAYBE garam masala
If you don’t have the wherewithal to grind your own GM, don’t use it. I generally leave it out anyway.
This is a tomato salad, not an onion salad. For 3 medium tomatoes I used half a shallot.
I guess any good tomato will do. For the first time today I used green zebra tomatoes. As I discovered: I’ve been waiting for SO long for them to ripen, only to have it finally explained to me that this is it. Green. Maybe faint orange tinge. I really don’t know if I approve. The colour of tomatoes is so important. Still, at least they are upfront about themselves, there’s no pretending to be red the way so many false tomatoes do these days.
