Great Grandma Mildred's
Tomato-Pepper Salad

Great Grandma Mildred worked with a wonderful woman named Brita Saladino in the kitchen of St. Paul Gradeschool. They were great friends, sharing a love of life and plenty of recipes. This salad was one of their simplest, but most satisfying. (When we make it, my husband snacks away at least half the bowl before supper is even served.) As always, this late summer delight is best with produce fresh from the garden or farmers market.


6 Roma tomatoes
2 green bell peppers
1 small white onion
1 tbs. olive oil
2 tbs. white vinegar (or white wine vinegar, if you prefer)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar

Wash and dice tomatoes into 1/2 inch pieces. Remove seeds and stem from peppers and dice the same size as the tomatoes. Peel and dice the onions. Toss tomatoes, peppers and onions in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining four ingredients and toss thoroughly.
