I love heirloom tomatoes and this sounds like a great salad to take to a 4th of July gathering. Thanks for posting it.

A pinch is a common measurement of volume in British cooking! It's as clear to us what he means as a cup is to Americans. We Brits have difficulty with cups - we look in the cupboard and see cups of all shapes and sizes. Which one should we choose? We end up buying special measuring sets with cups, half cups, etc. At least you don't have to buy special thumbs and fingers!

A pinch, by the way, is the amount of something in powder or grain form that you can pick up between the tips of your thumb and forefinger.

Jeni -

I love the soft boiled egg Jeni... Nice breakfast. So when are you inviting me over that early?

If eating tasty stuff is a sin, I am certainly going south.
