3. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the eggs for 6-7 minutes. When cooked remove the eggs with a slotted spoon into a bowl of iced water to chill.

4. Meanwhile, slice and chop the tomato selection to get interesting shapes and add to a large bowl. Add the chopped shallots, garlic, red wine vinegar, oil and honey to a clean jam jar with a lid. Season with salt and pepper. Shake well and pour over the
tomatoes, toss together.

in half and place on the plates of salad.

6. Serve with warm flatbreads and a little sprinkle of salt and pepper.
