4 yellow tomatoes, cut into chunks
45g coarsely chopped onion
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
4 tsp minced fresh dill
4 tsp minced fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 slices white sandwich bread, crusts removed, cut into 1cm cubes

Add the pepper, onion, vinegar, one teaspoon each ofdill and parsley, one clove of garlic and sugar; puree until smooth. Pass through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl, pressing with the back of a spoon to extract as much liquid as possible. Season with one teaspoon of salt. Refrigerate until chilled (about an hour).
