Tomato and black basil salad (serves 2-4)


  1. Add the red onion to a bowl, then the tomatoes. Add a little salt and pepper. Leave for 10 minutes to allow the tomatoes to release some of their juices, and the onion to soften a little.
  2. Add the lemon juice, olive oil and basil. Fold gently a couple of times to mix. Serve immediately.


  • ½ red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 500 g mixed tomatoes, the best you can find, cut into different sized and shaped pieces
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup purple basil microgreens
  • salt and pepper

Can be substituted into any recipe calling for green basil microgreens for a burst of colour
