Salads don’t get much simpler than this. It’s best to use locally grown organic vegetables for this. What’s at work in this recipe is a medley of different ingredients that make this simple dish an exercise in opposites: sweet tomatoes, onions, and peppers are countered by briny green olives, garlic, and vinegar.
Layer the salad in a serving bowl as follows: first the tomatoes, then the’ onion, followed by the peppers, and then the olives.
Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour the dressing over the salad, let stand for 10 minutes at room temperature, sprinkle with the parsley, and serve.
