Sun-dried tomatoes

This post is in praise of sundried tomatoes. They are scrumptious and incredibly versatile. Here are two ways I like to use them.

1. In Salad

All salad requires is a few green ingredients, a few red ingredients and some mixing together. Pips. This is what I used.

Chop up everything into dainty little slices. Cut a few sundried tomatoes into into the mixture with some salad leaves. The oil from the tomato jar is also ideal for tossing the salad with, it adds a little hint of flavour. Done. I kept some extra in the fridge for a few days to serve with meals.

2. Flavouring Snacks

Inspired by my sister and mother who enjoy eating Ryvita I thought I would buy myself some of this healthy crisp-bread next time I was at Tesco’s. They like the ‘dark rye’ variety but I thought that was a bit too adventurous for me and so opted for the safe (or so I thought) sesame version. That was 3 weeks ago and I’ve only eaten three pieces. The first piece was not good. So I came up with a way to ‘yummify’ them. Slap on some philadelphia and sundried tomatoes and you’re good to go!

Any other suggestions for how to dress up my Ryvita?
