Method

It is best to serve this salad in a flat serving plate.

  • Cut the tomatoes in small quarters, sprinkle some salt and let them drain 15-20min.
  • During that time, turn the artichokes and slice them thinly.
  • Chop the onions (white and green parts) or slice the radishes.
  • Chop the long green pepper to get nice round slices
  • Cut the egg in small quarters (about same size as tomatoes)
  • Assemble all ingredients together in a serving plate (or in each individual plate) and pour over gently the vinaigrette.
  • Serve straight away.
