Hello sunshine!  This plate SCREAMS al fresco…. devoured with toasted, crusty sourdough bread and an ice cold glass of vino… this was the perfect bank holiday lunch.

These tinned sardines from Portugal were not fishy at all… they were soft, rich and salty so pairing them with sweet juicy tomatoes and fresh zingy ingredients complimented them beautifully. 

This entire dish takes 20 minutes to make!… Ridiculously simple, so healthy and something a little different so do give it a try.
