A simple salad of tomatoes, red onions, romano peppers, herbs, lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil
3 plum tomatoes – sliced
2 small red onions – sliced
10cm cucumber – sliced
1 red romano pepper – diced
10 fresh basil leafs – bruised, chopped
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Drizzle of good quality olive oil
Method: layer the tomatoes, red onion, cucumber and romano peppers in a flat serving plate or casserole dish. Season with a little salt and pepper then add the herbs. Finish by drizzling a little olive oil over the salad, this will help bring out the flavours. Cover and set aside at room temperature for 1-2 hours before serving, during this time the flavours will intensify.
