Fresh Side Salad Recipe

A vibrant side salad featuring sliced tomatoes, peppers, red onion, and a sprinkle of fresh basil. Perfect for a light side dish.





  • Step 1.

    Begin by washing your vegetables thoroughly under cold running water.
  • Step 2.

    Thinly slice the tomatoes, peppers, and red onion, ensuring each piece is evenly cut for a beautiful presentation.
  • Step 3.

    Tear the fresh basil leaves by hand to release their aromatic oils, and scatter them over the sliced vegetables.
  • Step 4.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a pinch of salt, and a twist of fresh black pepper to make a simple dressing.
  • Step 5.

    Drizzle the dressing over the sliced vegetables and basil, tossing gently to ensure everything is lightly coated.
