Salată asortată (Romanian Assorted Salad) (raw vegan)

A salad so simple and common in the Romanian households I shouldn't even post it, but since not everyone coming to visit our virtual kitchen is from our country we decided to share it anyway.
It's, of course, full of raw and green power :)
It's not the type of salad to be had on its own, but rather near a meaty or hearty main dish. We like pairing it with things like Truffle potato puree.
Enjoy :)

Last year: nothing except another kind of bun in the oven. :)

Ingredients (serves 2-3):
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 10 cm of a large cucumber
  • 1 small green bell pepper
  • 1 bunch of green onions
  • 4-5 radishes
  • 1-2 handfuls fresh salad leaves (lettuce and red cabbage)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons cold-pressed sunflower oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple vinegar (optional, only in early spring, instead of the not-yet-seasonal tomatoes)

The procedure, of course, is very simple and predictable. Chop up the cucumber and tomatoes into slices and bite-sized wedges:

Continue with the green onions and bell pepper:

Also slice and add the radishes and the torn salad leaves. Season with oil, salt and pepper and mix well. It's done, dig in! :)
