Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Halve your tomatoes. Thinly slice your pointed peppers, celery and spring onions. Toss everything together in a large bowl with a pinch of salt. Get your hands in there and give everything a good mix, drawing out some of the tomato juices.

    Set a frying pan over high heat. Roughly crush your peanuts in a pestle and mortar or in a bowl using the base of a jam jar to do the job. Add the peanuts and a pinch of salt the hot pan. Toast till golden and fragrant. Scatter over the salad and serve.
