Bloody Mary tomato salad

This bloody Mary-inspired salad is blooming brilliant and can be ready in just 15 minutes. Fresh tomatoes and celery topped with an exciting Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, hot pepper dressing and vodka (optional!).

  1. To make the dressing, whisk the vodka (if using), vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish and hot pepper sauce (to taste) in a bowl, along with any tomato juices. Add the celery salt and enough olive oil to bind it together.
  2. Put the tomatoes and celery in a lidded container and pour over the dressing; seal. Transport the basil to the picnic in a small bag and scatter over the tomatoes before serving.
