  • 1 large green capsicum

  • 2 tablespoon of dry mint or about .5 cup of fresh mint.

  • 3 cloves of crushed garlic

  • .5 cup of olive oil

I find it is easier to layer the salad in a large bowl: to put the

chopped tomatoes on bottom of bowl, now add the
cucumbers, then the
lettuce and
lastly add parsley on top.
Put salad in fridge covered.

Also put salad dressing in Jar in the fridge.

Just before guests arrive put on dressing and sprinkle dry mint or add fresh chopped mint on top and then toss salad.
This recipe is great at a party.
