Golden Tomato & Goat's Cheese Salad with Herb Dressing

These golden Favo tomatoes are so juicy, flavourful and utterly gorgeous that keeping it simple was the only way to go. Crisp leafy greens, creamy goat’s cheese and a vibrant herb dressing are the perfect companions for these tomatoes. Enjoy with my cheat garlic ‘’flatbreads’’.
