I finally calmed down after the Holidays and needed to return to some clean fresh eating. Even though I really do love all the Passover food it’s nice to return to some lighter fare.
I actually served this on my Seder Table and it so delicious along side any meat dish . I particularly love it over grilled chicken or fried chicken cutlets.
Whatever and whenever you decide to serve this it will be most wonderful.
Just a word about making ahead… I chopped and diced all the vegetables and put in a bowl and put in the fridge. I juiced my lemon and had it set aside. Right before serving I added olive oil and lemon juice stirred it up well and tasted for salt and pepper.
If you add oil and lemon juice too soon it will be very soggy and I don’t like it that way at all. So just have it all ready to serve and add dressing right before.
this is what I used feel free to substitute whatever you’d like. ( Canned Chick Peas are also delicious in this) Olives, Scallions, Feta Cheese, whatever you feel like.
1 Large Seedless Cucumber or remove the seeds from a seeded one or just keep the seeds if you don’t care
1 box grape tomatoes halved
1 yellow pepper, diced or an orange one. I used orange and yellow about 1/2 and 1/2
1/2 cup diced red onion
2 Tbsp. Fresh Parsley , chopped
2-3 Tablespoons Olive Oil– I used 3 but you can start with 2 add the salt and pepper and add for more flavor after
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
In a large bowl, toss together all the vegetables. Add the lemon juice, olive oil and chopped parsley and mix thoroughly to coat.
Season with Salt and Pepper to your liking. Serve cold or at room temperature. I like it cold but it’s delicious either way.
This looks so pretty. I love all the bright colors and the ingredients sound wonderful. I think I would love it with the chickpeas and feta would be a great addition. I love those suggestions. I’m looking forward to making this for a covered dish I have coming up
This looks really good and healthy!
