Ensalada de Tomate (Tomato Salad)

Print
My friends Nicole and Ray prepared the following recipe for this month's Chef Spotlight dinner where we highlighted Spanish chefs and cuisine. The combination of fruit and seafood in this salad is so refreshing and wonderful for summer.
A fresh and refreshing salad for the summer, Spanish tomato salad is simple to make. Toss sliced tomatoes, green pepper and onions on a platter and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and vinegar. Sprinkle with salt and you have a delicious salad. If you want to spice it up, chop a bit of fresh basil and or oregano and sprinkle over the top.
