This might be the world’s most flavorful salad without lettuce. If you buy the correct ingredients that is. Every chef or home chef will tell you and if they can speak in caps lock they would say ALWAYS BUY THE BEST INGREDIENTS IF YOU WANT THE BEST DISH!
3 ripe heirloom tomatoes, cut into large moon shaped pieces
Fresh Feta cheese , crumble it yourself
Olive tapenade, comes in a jar, you’ll use two large spoonfuls
Fresh chopped parsley, about 1/4 cup
Fresh chopped dill, about one teaspoon
Olive oil, my favorite is imported from sicily and sometimes I use infused oils like lemon infused or garlic infused. Those would add a phenomenal flavor and make a huge difference in your salad
Drizzle of red wine vinegar
Drizzle of peperoncini juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: a protein, literally any protein will be an incredibly tasty addition. For example: chopped salami, prosciutto, chopped chicken, chopped turkey….I didn’t lie when I said “literally” anything.
You need no directions here, just toss everything together and let the ingredients speak for themselves. Top your salad with feta cheese and voila, you got yourself a gourmet Mediterranean salad! Enjoy!
