300g mixed colour cherry tomatoes
2 Lebanese cucumbers, cut into sticks

1 clove garlic, crushed
Salad leaves
½ bunch basil leaves
1 packet Yumi’s Falafel
Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper


  1. Heat oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat.  Fry bread slices, 4-5 at a time, until golden on both sides.  Drain on paper towel.
  2. Combine tomatoes, cucumber, onion and olives in a bowl.  Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar and garlic.  Season then pour over the tomato mixture and gentle toss to combine. 
  3. Arrange salad leaves and tomato mixture onto a serving platter.  Arrange Yumi’s Falafel on top then, when just about to serve, tuck in fried bread slices and scatter with basil.
