Andalusian Tomato Salad

Photo by: Joseph DeLeo

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.

Yield: 6 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 large ripe tomatoes, cut into 6 wedges each
  • 1 Spanish onion, sliced into thin rings
  • 2 red bell peppers, cored, seeded, and cut into thin rings
  • 1/3 cup good-quality green olives, pitted if desired

For the dressing:

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Directions

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.
