You can grow tomatoes in Denmark in the summer, and I do that with my mother in a greenhouse at her house in the country, and in my own small greenhouse in Copenhagen. We grow about 10 to 15 different kinds, and we experiment a lot with different varieties to find out which ones we think taste the best here in our climate. We have been quite successful with cherry tomatoes, both red and yellow, and this recipe is a great summer salad using our greenhouse tomatoes. The best way to enjoy this salad is outside for lunch, with rye bread and butter.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g cherry tomatoes, red and yellow
2 sprigs fresh tarragon, leaves only
edible flowers, to decorate

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
30g soft goat cheese
75g greek yogurt
2 tablespoons single cream
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the croutons

Quantity Ingredient
3 thin slices stale bread
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Method

  1. Mix all the ingredients together for the dressing, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. For the croutons, fry the bread in the olive oil on both sides until golden brown. Leave to cool and then break into smaller pieces.
  3. Cut the tomatoes in half and place on a serving platter. Sprinkle over the tarragon leaves and croutons, add small dollops of the dressing and decorate with fresh edible flowers, if you have some. Serve right away.
