Serves 4


8 plum tomatoes, halved lengthways

4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

75g Greek olives, pitted

For the basil dressing

5 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

1 good tsp Dijon mustard

Handful of fresh basil leaves – reserve 2 or 3 for garnish



Make the basil dressing using a stick blender or a food processor, to whizz the ingredients together.

Place the halved tomatoes in a roasting tin, cut side uppermost.

Scatter with the garlic and drizzle with half the basil dressing.

Place the tomatoes in a pre heated oven 180c / gas mark 4 for 10-15 minutes. Take care not to let them get too soft.

Serve the tomatoes on a platter or individually and scatter with the halved olives and extra dressing.

Garnish with the reserved basil leaves.
