Juicy and Not-So-Spicy Salad - aka Guido's Salad
Recipe by Mark "Guido The Gardner" ® Ferro
March 2000

  • 4 sliced tomatoes
  • 1 thinly sliced English cucumber
  • 1 medium heat pepper like a pasilla, cut into rings
  • 1 medium size sweet onion
  • 2-3 cloves of crushed garlic
  • olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper

This could just as easily been called the Tomato, Cucumber, Pepper, and Onion Salad, because that's what's in here!

Arrange the tomato slices on a large plate.

Tuck in the cucumbers and peppers between the tomato slices. If you want a milder flavor, sub in a red bell pepper instead of the pasilla.

In a bowl, combine the chopped onion, crushed garlic, a good splash of olive oil and maybe a small gurgle of balsamic vinegar. Don't use much vinegar as the tomatoes will give this dish the acid balance.

Put in a pich of salt and some cracked pepper and pour over the veggies.

You can tranform this into more of a salsa by chopping the ingredients finer and mixing all together.
