From the kitchen of:

The Produce Box newsletter 2010


2 green bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1-1/2 inch dice

3 vine-ripe tomatoes, seeded and diced

1 small onion, chopped

1 large clove garlic, finely chopped

1/2 c. flat-leaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped

1 TB fresh lemon juice (1/2 a lemon yields 1 TB)

1 TB red wine vinegar

3 TB extra-virgin olive oil

Coarse salt

Black Pepper

1 tsp ground cumin


Combine peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and parsley in a bowl, mixing together with your fingertips.

Squeeze the lemon juice evenly over the salad. Squeeze the juice out of the lemon with the lemon half sitting upright. This will hep prevent the seeds from falling into the bowl. The lemon juice will spill down over the sides of the lemon and the seeds will remain with the fruit. Hint: If the lemon is under-ripe, microwave it for 10 seconds before you cut into it. 

Sprinkle the vinegar over the salad.

Drizzle the olive oil over the slaad.

Add the salt, pepper, and cumin. Toss again.

Taste to adjust seasonings, and serve.
