This tomato salad is very versatile and full of flavour. It can be served on its own but goes perfectly with fish! It has to be one of my favourite salads. What makes this even better is that I have made this recipe using home-grown Basil that I have grown using a Nouri Indoor Smart Garden that I was gifted.
I definitely don’t have green fingers but the Nouri Smart Garden made growing the basil effortless.
You can grow your favorite herbs, greens and fruits year round with Nouri’s smart technology. No need to worry about a failed harvest as Nouri is green thumb guaranteed. With Nouri you can be confident that your harvest is completely clean! Your herbs will always be fresh, organic, ready to use and in season!
