Tomatoes, Garlic Sausage, Manchego Cheese and Herbs


  • 6 good sausages (go to a butcher they are just better)
  • 6 nice ripe tomatoes
  • Herbs – basil & flat leaf parsley
  • Manchego cheese
  • Tuscan Downs Extra Virgin Olive Oil


This is so easy and such a treat to eat. Slice up the tomatoes at least 1cm thick and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Then, either on a BBQ or a griddle pan, quickly cook them on a really high heat until the bars make a black line on each side then set aside on a large plate in a single layer.

Add the sausages and cook through. Slice these up and cover the tomatoes. Then shave the cheese (I use a potato peeler) and sprinkle with chopped herbs. Drizzle with Tuscan Downs Extra Virgin Olive Oil and one or two grinds of black pepper.
