Simple late summer salad It's RED AND GREEN!

And believe it or not, it's vegetarian, so dig in, feel the love.
Love this kind of recipes that don't involve a lot going on. LUV 'EM!

 Did I say it's easy? No? IT'S EASY TOO!
Did I say it's yummy? No? Crap. IT'S YUMMY TOO!
Now, why am I shouting at you as if you're deaf, I don't know, but seriously- this is your salad of the Day! Kill It! Nail It! Just Do it!

Did I motivate you enough?
-if not, please read down:

Type of dish: salad, side
Cost: cheap
Difficulty: easy
Serves: 2
Time: 10 min
Preparation time: 10 min

You'll need:
a cutting board, a sharp knife, medium serving bowl, spoons to serve.

  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes diced large ( if you don't get the ripe ones, try to plan ahead, buy a few orange tomatoes and put them in a sunny place for a few days. They get a little bit better.)
  • 2 baked red bell pepper, skin removed, cut in inch wide strips ( you can get them ready made in jars filled with oil)
  • small handfull of olives ( the kind you find in the deli, unpitted, but colourful and flavourful- green, red, purple, black- you get the idea, right?)
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped ( I cannot belive the amoutnt of onions I 've been chopping lately. Makes me want to cry)
  • half a bunch of fresh parsley, chopped of course finely. You don't want to choke on the parsley, do you?
  • Olive oil and red wine vinegar
  • S&P
You go:
Chop up the stuff and start layering in a bowl- on the bottom the tomatoes with the bell peppers
olives, then, throw around and on the pile the olives, on top of that plunk the onions, so it doesn't topple of yet ( not until you mix it), and on the onion, put the parsley.
Give it a few good shots with the olive oil and vinegar- a few dashes like 3 is good enough and add the S&P at the table, so you can adjust the taste.
OMG, feels like heaven!

Additional info:
If you have some good quality feta cheese you can crumble in a chunky slice and leave it like that. Just use less salt later.
Oh, isn't this good? Don't you smell the sun? Holidays? Mwah!
