A summer staple, this flavorful salad is also good with grilled fish or chicken. Like all fresh tomato salads, it provides some fiber and a healthy dose of vitamin C.

Very versatile and delicious I make this all the time, using whatever vegetables I have on hand. It's great with zucchini, celery, jicama, bell peppers (red, green, and yellow make it colorful), etc. We don't like kalamata olives so I leave them out. If I don't have fresh parsley, I use a little dried and have also used a little basil. Holds well for the next day, too. Have topped it with grilled chicken and have tossed in some 3 cheese crumbles for something different and a bit more substantial for a meal. Pros: Lots of fresh veggies Cons: NULL

So amazing! My family this for dinner tonight. The adults were full after two pieces of grilled tofu topped with one cup of the salsa. The kids ate it and said they liked it very much. This one is a keeper! Pros: Cons:
