To go with your barbecue, grab the best cherry toms you can find. Cut them in half and put in a bowl. Prepare a nice red pepper, cut into slices and add to the toms. Sprinkle with your finest extra virgin olive oil and a splash of top-quality balsamic vinegar (not that ghastly thin stuff: if you're paying less than twelve quid for your balsamic you're wasting your money - it should be almost as thick as runny honey). Mix well. Top this with Romaine lettuce, or Little Gem, chopped up, and a handful of wild rocket, but don't mix the lettuce with the dressing until you're ready to eat (it'll wilt if you do). You can prepare this hours in advance: just cover it with clingfilm. Lovely in a bap with your burger and afterwards with your butcher's sausages, washed down with more red wine than is good for you.
