Healthy kid's recipe - Simple tomato salsa

Refreshing fruit wands
Well, another successful cooking class was had in Finchley. Today on the menu were fruit wands, fruit salad that ended up on sticks so the children could take the fruit home with them to share with their families and tomato salsa.

We ventured out into my front garden and I got the children to smell a variety of herbs - thyme, rosemary, mint and oregano.
Simple tomato salsa
1 large tomato
1 tbsp of fresh oregano leaves
1 tbsp vinegar

Simple tomato salsa ready for the taking...
2 tbsp olive oil
A little salt and pepper
  1. Chop the tomatoes into small cubes
  2. Pour over the vinegar and oil and add the seasoning (salt and pepper) to taste
  3. Sprinkle over the oregano leaves and mix together
Top tip: this can also be used as the topping for bruschetta. You could substitute the oregano for thyme, parsley or basil leaves.
