Garlicky tomato salad variations: Try a salad of cherry tomatoes and sugar snap peas. Trim 250 g sugar snap peas and steam for about 3 minutes or until tender but still crisp. Refresh under cold running water, then cool. Mix with 370 g cherry tomatoes, halved if large, and 6 thinly sliced green onions. Make the garlic vinaigrette as in the main recipe and drizzle it over the tomatoes and peas. Add 4 tablespoons chopped fresh mint, or 1 tablespoon each chopped fresh tarragon and parsley, and toss to mix.
